Friend of way­ward woman charged with DUI

The Covington News - - CRIME - STAFF RE­PORTS news@cov­

A Cov­ing­ton woman was ar­rested early Mon­day morn­ing af­ter po­lice found her re­port­edly driv­ing in­tox­i­cated, on her way home, she said, from drop­ping off a friend who was cheat­ing on her hus­band.

Of­fi­cers from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment re­sponded to an ac­ci­dent on U.S. High­way 278 and, ac­cord­ing to re­ports, when they spoke with Monique Clark, one of the driv­ers in­volved, they im­me­di­ately no­ticed a smell of al­co­hol on her, that she was un­steady on her feet, and that her eyes were blood­shot.

When asked, Clark al­legedly told of­fi­cers that she had not been drink­ing that evening, but that she had just dropped off her friend — who was cheat­ing on her hus­band — and was head­ing home to check on her chil­dren.

She re­port­edly agreed to per­form field so­bri­ety tests when asked, and per­formed poorly on each of them, ac­cord­ing to re­ports. She ini­tially re­fused a breath test, but once at the jail asked why they had not given her one, and con­sented to it.

Clark’s al­co­hol level came back at .060, re­ports said. The le­gal limit in the state of Ge­or­gia is .08.

She was charged with DUI less safe and no proof of in­sur­ance. Be on the look­out

Deputies from the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice are look­ing for a man who al­legedly pulled a gun on a man at Ar­bor Lake Apart­ments Tues­day evening.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, a man called po­lice and told them that an­other man that he oc­ca­sion­ally “hangs around” with had pulled up near his apart­ment in a sil­ver ve­hi­cle with two other males in the car. The man who sum­moned deputies re­port­edly told them that he felt un­com­fort­able be­cause he didn’t know the man in the back seat.

He said when he started back­ing away from the ve­hi­cle, the man in the back seat started shoot­ing at him.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the NCSO at 678-625-1400 or on­line at­ton­sh­er­if­ All tips can be given anony­mously.
