COVINGTON -- The Newton County Sheriff's Office has been dealing with complaints of people making threats lately.
An incident on Tuesday afternoon involved three Army recruiters who inadvertently traveled down a gravel road, apparently raising the ire of a resident.
According to NCSO spokesman Lt. Tyrone Oliver, the three men said they pulled onto the gravel portion of Kinnett Road around 1 p.m.
"They got to the dead end and after turning around, they were confronted by a white female, yelling and calling them names," Oliver said. "She was accusing them of speeding. She stood in the middle of the road, blocking their path and threw a large rock at the vehicle."
Oliver said as the confrontation continued, the recruiters drove around the woman and she threw another rock, hitting the rear passenger side of the vehicle.
He said a man also got into the debate and threatened to get a shotgun.
Due to the damage done to their government-issued vehicle, the men called 911.
Arrested and charged with three counts each of terroristic threats and acts and interference with government property were Dorthy Deannie Davis, 48, of 70 Kinnett Road, and Jimmy Dewayne Overby, 36, of 170 Oglesby Bridge Road, Conyers.
Also, on Saturday, deputies went to Long Drive where a woman told them a neighbor had come to her house with a 12-gauge shotgun and threatened to shoot her kids for coming onto her property.
After speaking with all parties involved, Oliver said the woman, Omesha Taylor, 26, of 15 Kirkland Meadows, was arrested for terroristic acts and threats and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Also, it was discovered that the woman's husband, Stephen Taylor, 27, was a convicted felon and was in possession of a firearm and deputies arrested him as well.
