Woman chases roommate with spoons

A Covington woman was charged with disorderly conduct after reportedly chasing her roommate with a "bouquet of spoons wrapped with a rubber band."

Officers responded to a home on Maple Drive Friday morning and saw a woman, later identified as Kathy L. Dennis, walk around the back corner of the home toward the road with blood on her face and clothing. As officers were speaking to Dennis, another woman came out of the residence covered in blood as well.

The victim turned out to be the second woman, who had come out of the house when officers arrived. She reportedly told them she had been lying in bed when Dennis came in and hit her several times with the spoon bouquet.

The victim told officers that she defended herself by using her hands and arms and that Dennis ran out the front door after attacking her, at which time the victim locked the door and called police. Dennis allegedly admitted to officers that she went into the bedroom and attacked the victim with the bundle of spoons. She was transported to the Newton County Jail and charged with disorderly conduct.

Missing minor leads to charges

A worried mother called police late Sunday evening after her 16-year-old daughter had not arrived at home hours after getting off work. She was supposed to have been riding with a co-worker, 45-year-old Wellington Mark Ferguson.

Officers found Ferguson’s address and went to his home to check for the teen.

When they arrived, one officer looked in a window and saw a white female lying on the bed with her shirt up and her pants unbuttoned.

When officers entered the home and confronted Ferguson and the teenager, she reportedly "had an attitude."

However, she was put in a patrol car and taken to the Covington Police Department where her mother picked her up.

Ferguson was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
