A New­ton High School stu­dent was ar­rested for un­der­age drink­ing on Thurs­day. A deputy with the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to the school’s sus­pen­sion room just be­fore 1 p.m. where a ju­ve­nile male was sit­ting at a desk. Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, the teen was lean­ing against the desk and cov­ered in vomit. An as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal searched the stu­dent’s book bag and found a clear plas­tic wa­ter bot­tle con­tain­ing a clear liq­uid, which was be­lieved to be vodka. The deputy con­tacted EMS and called the teen’s mother, who also ar­rived on the scene. The stu­dent was taken to the hospi­tal and the case was turned over to ju­ve­nile court. Cony­ers man re­ports dam­age to ve­hi­cle

A deputy with the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice was dis­patched to Val­ley Brook Drive in ref­er­ence to dam­age to prop­erty on Sun­day. The deputy spoke to a Cony­ers man who said he parked his 2007 Mit­subishi Out­lander in front of a res­i­dence on Val­ley Brook Drive and then walked up the street to a gath­er­ing at a friend’s house. Around 7:40 p.m., the man was told that some­one smashed out a win­dow from a ve­hi­cle down the street. The man checked his ve­hi­cle and no­ticed there was no back win­dow. The deputy re­ported that there were pieces of glass on the ground and two small rocks on the ground next to the ve- hi­cle. There were also pieces of glass and a small rock inside the ve­hi­cle. The man said he wasn’t from the area and wasn’t sure who would have dam­aged his ve­hi­cle. Po­lit­i­cal sign stolen from Ox­ford home

A man told a deputy with the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice that some­one stole a po­lit­i­cal sign from his drive­way. The deputy re­sponded to a home at Gum Creek Road in Ox­ford in ref­er­ence to a theft on Thurs­day. The deputy spoke to a man who said in the last few days some­one had stolen the po­lit­i­cal sign. The man said it was a large sign that was tied to fence posts and that the posts were miss­ing too. The man told the deputy that some­one had dam­aged the sign pre­vi­ously by cut­ting the zip ties on one side of it, but he fixed it. He also said his phone line near the tele­phone pole had been cut on Sun­day, but he wasn’t sure if it was re­lated to this in­ci­dent or if some­one hit it with a mower. Woman lets wanted co­worker move into her home

A Fayet­teville man was ar­rested Satur­day af­ter­noon for out­stand­ing war­rants af­ter au­thor­i­ties were called about a po­ten­tial child mo­lesta­tion.

New­ton County Sher­iff’s Lt. Keith Crum said that a woman called au­thor­i­ties re­port­ing a rape. When deputies ar­rived a dis­patch op­er­a­tor told them that a neigh­bor had called and said they could hear a woman and kids “scream­ing hys­ter­i­cally” and that a young boy was at the door to the home scream­ing, and a woman ran out into the street with a small fe­male child. The neigh­bor said the woman was “ram­bling” that she had two kids and a male in the house, and that the male had a weapon and had been drink­ing.

When deputies made contact with the woman at the home, she iden­ti­fied the man inside as Ni­cholas Ho­ra­cio Thomp­son, they learned he was a co­worker of the woman, and she had re­cently al­lowed him to move into her home with her and her three small chil­dren. She re­port­edly told deputies that her 4-year-old daugh­ter had made an out­cry to her, say­ing that she had been mo­lested by Thomp­son.

The claims made by the young girl are still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Thomp­son had sev­eral out­stand­ing war­rants from sur­round­ing coun­ties. He was ar­rested and trans­ported to jail. Drunk man fires off round af­ter fight

A Cov­ing­ton man was ar­rested early Sun­day morn­ing af­ter de­cid­ing to fire a round from his gun into the air out­side his mo­bile home fol­low­ing a fight with his wife.

John An­thony Anglin and his wife had been out drink­ing when they got into an ar­gu­ment. They de­cided to head home but the ar­gu­ment con­tin­ued there. At one point, Anglin’s wife walked out and he re­port­edly got an­gry, throw­ing his iPhone through a glass door, shat­ter­ing it. He then re­port­edly went onto the back porch and fired a round in the air.

The wife and neigh­bors called for as­sis­tance. Ac­cord­ing to Krum, Anglin was fine and had just been drink­ing. His gun was taken from him and he was taken to jail.
