Four-wheeler madness across the river; general madness in the Boddie projects
A pair of men recently found themselves in the "New Massee Motel" after being charged with aggravated assault in separate incidents.
A deputy earlier this month responded to the 100 block of Old Country Club Road, located off of Ga. 22 and not far from the river bridge. There, he made contact with the victim, who said that he previously noticed some suspicious activity at his neighbor's house. The victim added that he hopped on his f0ur-wheeler and began driving towards his neighbor's property. At some point, "a young white male with dark hair and a beard" came out of the house, got in a car and "intentionally rammed the four-wheeler that (the victim) was sitting on." The suspect then put the car in reverse before speeding away from the area, added the incident report.
Around that same time, another neighbor approached the deputy and showed the deputy a picture of a naked man who was on her property earlier that morning. The deputy concluded that the naked man in the picture was the same man who tried to run over the guy on the four-wheeler.
A BOLO then was put out for a silver Ford Edge, which the suspect stole after breaking into the house prior to plowing into the four-wheeler with the man sitting on it.
Later that day, another 911 call came in to dispatch in reference to a suspicious person near the pond in the 2920 block of Irwinton Road. A deputy responded and quickly spotted the suspect, who "had numerous cuts over his entire body, he had no shoes, and he and could not produce any form of identification."
Added the deputy's narrative in the incident report: "The male subject did not know his name, where he was, or where he came from. I attempted to talk to the male who stated, 'I do not have to talk to you, I am not going to talk to you. Please do not murder me. I don't like cops and I don't have to talk to you.'"
An ambulance arrived, and the suspect finally told one of the paramedics his name – Robert Blake Elliott. Elliott, 28, listed with an address in Cleveland, Ga., was treated for his injuries and ultimately arrested.
The stolen Ford eventually was found in the woods at Bartram Forest, roughly 2-and-a-half miles away from where Elliott was found on foot. He ultimately was charged with three different felonies – aggravated assault, burglary and theft by taking – as well as hit and run.
Meanwhile, a relatively large fracas broke out in the Graham Homes/Boddie projects around dusk Monday. The 911 call was "in reference to a crowd of people actively fighting in the roadway" in the 1110 block of Highland Avenue. "
A sheriff's deputy actually arrived on the scene first before the Milledgeville Police Department arrived en masse. When the first officer arrived, he assisted the deputy in separating two men who were "actively throwing punches and pushing one another." One of the men, later identified as Jacquez Marqueta Goddard, was placed in handcuffs. Three women and another man then were separated from the crowd and also detained.
After sorting through a wide variety of stories and interpretations about what really happened, law enforcement decided to arrest a half-dozen different people – Jacquez Goddard, 19, Shaneria Shanique Lewis, 35, Shymecia D'Asia Lewis, 21, My'Kia Ni'Asia Whipple, 18, Quandrelle Dejon Goddard, 25, and Tanisha Michelle Goddard, 45.
The two Lewises, two of the Goddards (Tanisha and Quandrelle) and Whipple each was charged with one count of fighting/affray, a misdemeanor.
Jacquez Goddard, however, was charged with one count each of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and fighting/affray after law enforcement concluded that, at some point, "Goddard produce a handgun from his waste-band and point it at (Shymecia) Lewis before returning it under his clothes and walking off from the area."
Added the officer's narrative in the incident report: "Information provided to me by the officers who remained on scene advised J. Goddard and S. Lewis were initially involved in a verbal altercation over S. Lewis owing J. Goddard money for baby supplies. After a brief verbal argument, the altercation became physical between the two at which point S. Lewis (mother) and Whipple became involved in attacking J. Goddard. Once the melee began, T. Goddard also stepped in with the assistance of Q. Goddard to break up the parties involved but were subsequently drawn into the altercation as well. I was later informed by (the deputy) when he first arrived on scene, he observed Q. Goddard strike S. Lewis (daughter) in the face with closed fist before detaining J. Goddard."
The incident marked the third arrest for Goddard, 19, since he turned 17. In 2021, he was booked and charged with felony theft by taking, while this past April he was locked up for criminal trespass and battery/family violence.
