The Georgia Peaches

An out-of-control lingerie party resulted in seventy arrests, and the confiscation of drugs and guns. Gawd, I need to move to Georgia.

According to Cartersville officials, the police department responded to Cain Drive in the early morning hours of New Year’s Eve after getting reports of shots being fired.

When officers got there, they were met with the smell of marijuana and several people trying to run from the area. After entering the home, officers said they saw weed in plain view and confiscated a semi-automatic weapon. Because of the presence of drugs, a gun and the sheer number of people inside, Cartersville Police notified the Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force to assist.

The drug task force got a search warrant and recovered two weapons (one reportedly stolen from Detroit, Mich.), individually-wrapped packages of marijuana and several smoking devices. Drug agents also found individually-wrapped packages of cocaine and other paraphernalia on several people.

My New Year’s Eve was spent playing Nintendo Wii with the kids, struggling to stay up until midnight, and wincing at the sound of Jenny McCarthy’s voice.

    1. Me too!

      I was visiting my grandkids. We went to bed at 10pm. I got a good nights sleep. Then again, I had to get up and head 1300 miles home the next day.


  1. Ronni – I saw the story, but refused to mention it. CNN has less credibility than the FBI.

    Mike – I know, right?

    RG – A few minutes after midnight, we ushered the kids to bed… and ourselves.


  2. I can think of quite a few better ways for out-of-control lingerie party to end other than handcuffs, mug shots, and court dates. OK, maybe the handcuffs.

    (Who am I kidding. The only thing I did was play WoW and wait for Guy Lombardo to come on. For some reason he never did.)
