A Lexington man was arrested last week for child molestation.

James Christopher Angelo, 35, was charged with one count of child molestation and a probation violation.

Captain Jimmy Patton of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said the case was reported in March and allegedly involves a child under 14 (unrelated to Angelo) who lived in the same home at the time and involved “fondling.”

In another incident, Hank Chevi Card, 32, homeless, was charged with one count of public drunkenness. Deputy Joshua Rice responded to a call of a suspicious male at Stone Stewart Road. Rice found Card in the driveway of a home where he told Rice that someone was trying to get him and that “they” were watching them.

In another arrest, Michael Edward Hattaway, 56, of Lilburn, was charged with open container, possession and use of drug-related objects and public drunkenness.

Deputy Carolyn Gibson was dispatched to Hwy. 72 near Farm Road regarding a person asking for assistance after their vehicle reportedly ran out of gas. The caller was reportedly walking towards Comer.

Gibson retrieved a gas container and went to the scene at about 1:20 a.m. She found Hattaway and noted that she could immediately smell alcohol on his breath. He admitted to drinking two beers while at Stone Mountain about two hours before. He agreed to take and failed a roadside alcohol test. His truck was later found unsecured with the keys in the ignition. An open container of alcohol and drug and drug paraphernalia were found inside the truck, along with a loaded revolver. The truck was towed and the contents placed into evidence.
