Commerce Police Department officers recently responded to a woman on Andrew Jackson St. who complained about being threatened by a man who she claimed had abused her in the past.

Police arrested Andrew Douglas Nichols, 40, 38 Dunahoo Rd., Winder, for the threats. The woman said Nichols began yelling threats towards her at her residence and she ran to a neighbor's property to get away from him. Nichols followed the woman to the neighbor's residence, but the neighbor pulled out a hand gun to make Nichols leave his property.

The woman said Nichols began yelling at her because she had been in a relationship with a black man. Nichols confirmed her story and bragged to officers about being a member of a white supremacist gang called "Crazy White Boys." 

Because the woman felt unsafe around Nichols, he was arrested and charged with simple assault.
