A Commerce grandfather was arrested for DUI recently after his granddaughter, and others, reported him driving recklessly up and down McGinnis – Chandler Road.
Fabian Johnny Worley, 51, was charged with DUI/multiple substances and weaving over the roadway.
On Aug. 25, Deputy Tracy Rucker was dispatched to McGinnis-Chandler Road concerning a DUI. On arrival, he spoke with the complainant, who stated that her grandfather (Worley) was driving fast and reckless up and down the road. She explained that she heard him run off the road, wrecking his automobile, and that then he drove home, running at a high rate of speed. She said she watched him do doughnuts in his driveway before going into his garage. Rucker and another officer went to Worley’s residence to speak with him. Dispatch notified Rucker in the meantime that a BOLO came out of Jackson County about Worley’s 1999 Ford Mustang, after other witnesses allegedly saw Worley driving recklessly, spinning his tires.
Rucker noted that Worley smelled of alcohol and he admitted to drinking and taking Lortabs, a narcotic.
Worley also stated that he would not do it again if Rucker just “gave him a break this time.”
In another arrest, a Colbert woman was taken into custody last week after she allegedly let a small child she was babysitting wander away from the residence, naked.
Selena Carol Vickers, 28, was charged with one count of reckless conduct.
Officer Brandon Moss went to the scene at Madison Boulevard, where a man stated he found a small female child walking around in his yard, nude.
He stated he believed the child lived next door. As Moss was speaking with the man, a child from next door came over and stated that the child was her sister and that she was on the phone with their mother. Moss then spoke to the mother on the phone, who told him the child was supposed to be with a babysitter (Vickers).
Moss and another officer went to the nearby residence where the child was supposed to be and met with Vickers, who said that she was babysitting the child and that the child was currently “on the couch.”
Moss advised Vickers that her charge was not on the couch and she allegedly said, “I guess she went home.”
Moss then told Vickers that the little girl was found three houses away, nude. Vickers was handcuffed and taken to jail. The child’s grandmother took custody of the child, at the mother’s request.
In a third incident, two teens were arrested last week after a woman spotted them prowling her neighborhood (Jacob’s Field) when she took her kids to school about 7:30 a.m.
Sean Michael Laker, 19, of Danielsville, and Jeremy Chad Harris, 18, of Commerce, were each charged with loitering or prowling.
The woman told officer Joshua Smith that she hadn’t seen either of the males in the area before and that they appeared to be hiding themselves in a wood line as she passed. One was shirtless and the other was wearing a hoodie, according to the report. The teens were located and arrested.

Officer David Kidd responded to a BOLO for a reckless driver on Hwy. 172 coming into Madison County.
The vehicle was described as a green van with a handicapped license plate. He met the vehicle, followed by two other vehicles, just south of the 8-mile marker on Hwy. 172 and turned around and caught up with the last vehicle which was only a few car lengths from the green GMC van.
As they approached the intersection with Coile Road, the van turned right onto Coile Road. The next vehicle then continued southbound. The third vehicle pulled off the side of the road and began pointing at the green GMC that had turned. Kidd turned onto Coile Road and caught up with the van. Kidd then called Madison E911 and began to run the tag number. The van then pulled over on the side of the road in the curve about half way down Coile Road and stopped.
When Kidd approached the driver and requested her license, she (Massey) told him that she did not have it and that it was suspended. The vehicle information came back as valid tag with valid insurance. She also had a small dog with her in the van. Kidd asked her if she could get someone to come and get the van and the dog. She said she could and began calling her father. She then told the officer that her father was on his way from Hartwell. Due to the fact that she had the dog with her, Kidd allowed extra time to have someone collect the dog and van. Two hours later, her father had still not arrived.
Arrangements were then made for Code Enforcement Officer Beth Harmon to collect the dog and a tow truck was called to retrieve the vehicle. She was then taken to jail for booking. A few minutes later, the jail supervisor told Kidd they had found contraband on Massey when she was searched as part of the booking process. Several controlled narcotics were found in a baggie.
•Richard Ellen Edgmon, 61, 217 Cody Fowler Road, Commerce, was charged with battery FVA following a domestic dispute with his wife.

She stated that her and her husband were arguing over some financial problems and he tried to get her to move out of his way by pushing the door into her arm, causing a small laceration to her left arm. Haston then went and spoke with Edgmon, who stated that they were arguing over some financial problems and that he did close the door on her arm so she would leave. He was arrested.
