The Covington News - - Crime - DANIELLE EVER­SON deverson@cov­

A man and woman were ban­ished from the Cov­ing­ton Hous­ing Author­ity af­ter re­port­edly get­ting into a fight. Cov­ing­ton po­lice re­sponded to a call at Nixon Circle (inside the Hous­ing Author­ity) in ref­er­ence to a fam­ily fight around 11 p.m. on Fri­day.

A woman called po­lice and said an­other woman, later iden­ti­fied as Titoya Pare­more, was slapped in the face by her boyfriend Ni­cholas Bolton, while she was hold­ing a baby. While po­lice were on the way to the scene, dis­patch re­ceived an­other call from some­one who said Bolton was stand­ing over Pare­more and stomp­ing her as she held the baby.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, when po­lice ar­rived they were flagged down by about 25 peo­ple in front of Nixon Drive. Sev­eral peo­ple all talk­ing at once told po­lice which apart­ment Bolton and Pare­more were in. Po­lice went to the res­i­dence and knocked on the door.

A woman an­swered the door and po­lice asked her if she knew any­thing about Bolton and Pare­more get­ting into a fight. The woman said the pair had al­ready left on foot. She said Pare­more was wear­ing black pants and a black shirt. An­other of­fi­cer said she saw a fe­male match­ing the de­scrip­tion walk­ing with an­other per­son near the rail­road tracks on Al­covy Road. Po­lice drove to the Al­covy Road area and found Pare­more sit­ting in the bleach­ers at Pac­tiv soft­ball field.

They ap­proached her and asked her what her name was and Pare­more asked of­fi­cers why she needed to give them her name. Po­lice ex­plained that her name was needed for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion about a fight that hap­pened at the hous­ing author­ity. She told po­lice her name was Tif­fany. They asked for her name again and she told po­lice she was wait­ing for a ride. Po­lice con­tin­ued to ques­tion Pare­more and she fi­nally gave them her last name.

They es­corted her back to Nixon Circle. Po­lice also lo­cated Bolton at the soft­ball field and took him back to the area.

Two women iden­ti­fied the pair as the cou­ple in­volved in the fight. Wit­nesses said the two have pre­vi­ously fought in the hous­ing author­ity. Pare­more and Bolton had no vis­i­ble in­juries.

EMS was called to the scene to check the in­fant, but no in­juries were found. Po­lice said Pare­more had a war­rant out of Colum­bus. She was charged with giv­ing a false name. Bolton was charged with sim­ple bat­tery and cru­elty to chil­dren. The two were also given a ban­ish­ment notice to sign, which was sub­mit­ted to the hous­ing author­ity. They were taken to the New­ton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter. Man calls po­lice af­ter re­ceiv­ing coun­ter­feit money

An Ox­ford man said he re­ceived coun­ter­feit money from the KFC on U.S. High­way 278. The man said he went through the drive-thru at KFC and he paid for his or­der with a $20 bill, ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment. He said he then drove to a Tex­aco gas sta­tion at on Ga. High­way 81 and tried to buy items with a $10 bill he said he re­ceived from KFC, and the cashier told him the money was coun­ter­feit.

The man said he drove back to KFC to tell the man­ager he re­ceived a coun­ter­feit bill, and man­age­ment told him they could not give him back his money be­cause he had left the premises. The man said he asked man­age­ment if he could have the phone num- ber to the dis­trict man­ager, but man­age­ment told them man they could not give out that num­ber. Po­lice spoke with the em­ploy­ees inside of KFC and they again said they could not give the man back his money be­cause he left the premises.

The em­ploy­ees gave the po­lice of­fi­cer the store man­ager’s phone num­ber and said the man could call back on Mon­day. The $10 bill was taken as ev­i­dence. Amici em­ployee punched by em­ployee’s boyfriend

Cov­ing­ton po­lice spoke with an em­ployee at Amici’s who said he was as­saulted by an­other em­ployee’s boyfriend when he ar­rived at work on Sun­day morn­ing. Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, the man said he ar­rived at work at 11 a.m. and no­ticed a fe­male em­ployee in her ve­hi­cle with her boyfriend. The em­ployee said as he pulled up be­hind Amici’s, the man ran to his ve­hi­cle and be­gan punch­ing him through the win­dow. The em­ployee said he got out of his ve­hi­cle, put the man in a head­lock and wres­tled him to the ground.

The em­ployee said he held the man down and then an­other fe­male em­ployee ran out of the res­tau­rant and told the man if he did not leave she would call the po­lice. The em­ployee said the man then ran to his ve­hi­cle and left the scene. Po­lice said the male em­ployee had sev­eral cuts and marks on his knees.

The em­ployee told po­lice the man started the fight be­cause the man thought his girl­friend was in a re­la­tion­ship with him be­cause his num­ber was in her phone. The em­ployee did not pro­vide any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about who the man was. A prop­erty watch was put on the busi­ness in ref­er­ence to the man be­ing on the premises.
