ATHENS, Ga. - An assistant district attorney in Clarke County has resigned after he was charged with theft and public intoxication.

Athens-Clarke police said 36-year-old William Michael Olson was arrested early Wednesday after he got into an altercation with a street vendor for refusing to pay for a hot dog.

Police said the fracas occurred at about 1:25 a.m. on College Ave.

Olson was released from custody on $500.00 bond. He resigned his post following a meeting with District Attorney Ken Mauldin.

Inebriated people, whether ADAs or homeless folks, have histories of doing stupid things. Olson adds another chapter to the long story of insipidity.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Stupid is as stupid does. Put him in the looney pen with the Glynn County School Superintendent who used the school system's Blackberry to dial up porn.
