Police said Richard Connolly set out some fence posts along the side of his yard on Kelly's Ferry Road.

At 431 Browns Ferry Road, Jeff Fox said he saw a green Ford Taurus in front of the rental residence that he watches for his brother, Danny Fox. The Taurus had an Alabama tag that, when checked, came back to a red Mercury Sable.

He said when he knocked on the door that "Dawn" said she had rented it from Danny Fox. He said she had rented it earlier, but had been evicted.

Jeff Fox told her he knew that was not true, and she quickly exited along with a white female and a white male.

Jeff Fox got behind the car so it could not move. The man got out and let Dawn behind the wheel. She backed into Jeff Fox (but did not hurt him or knock him down), then she was able to drive up against a corner of the house and then across the yard and vamoose.

Police said Jeff Fox had a gun with him, though the report says he does not have a gun carry permit for it. He said he had not taken it out of his pocket during the incident, though an officer said he heard him tell someone that he almost shot the tires out on the Taurus.

A worker at a local McDonald's said the husband of his assistant manager threatened to beat him up while he was doing maintenance work inside the restroom.

He said he was able to get away from the angry husband.

The worker said the assistant manager had threatened to fire him if he would not sleep with her. He said he did, thinking it would be a one-time thing. But he said she "kept asking for more sex."

He said when he would not do it again, the workplace became "hostile."
