 REPORTING OFFICER'S NARRATIVE (Brief narrative of the facts surrounding the offense and the arrest.)

Monica Drum (Person 1) called the sheriff's department non-emergency phone number and indicated she would like to file a harassment complaint. dispatch assigned on-duty patrol unit 221 (Ofc. Maria Richards) to take the report.

R/O arrived at the Oxford Eagle offices at 4:15 p.m. and met with Monica Drum. The complainant said she'd received a number of calls of a threatening nature from Melvin Roberts (Person 2). She said Roberts was "out to get her," and she was beginning to worry about her safety. The complainant said she had reported extensively on Roberts' recent arrest and trial for rape in her capacity as a reporter for the Oxford Eagle. She said Roberts apparently has significant resentment towards her, despite his recent acquittal.

The complainant said is often in the Oxford Eagle building alone, and said she was beginning to feel uncomfortable. She estimated Roberts had called her four or five times in the last month, usually between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. R/O suggested that the complainant could file for a restraining order, but she said she wasn't sure she wanted to go that far yet.

R/O advised the complainant to notify the YCSD if the harassment continued or escalated.

 

 DEFENDANT'S VERSION/REMARKS (What did the defendant say?)

R/O visited Melvin Roberts (Person 2) at the Melvin's Nite Owl convenience store. Roberts was hostile in response to questioning regarding Monica Drum, although he did not threaten violence. Roberts denied making any calls to Drum and challenged Drum to prove it.

R/O advised Roberts it would be possible to trace calls made to Drum, if necessary, whereupon he became extremely agitated and stated, "She can't prove anything! She can't prove a goddamn thing!"

R/O advised Roberts that if he wanted to be left alone, he had to stay out of trouble. R/O further cautioned Roberts that such behavior could jeopardize his participation in the diversion program for his public intoxication offenses. Roberts acknowledged that he understood.
