lPolice: Partier got out of control
DULUTH -- Police apprehended an underage Cinco de Mayo reveler for allegedly taking the fiesta too far in Duluth last week.
Police arrested Ryan Gilliam, 20, on charges of disorderly conduct and minor in possession of alcohol after his May 5 antics drew the ire of an off-duty cop at a Frontera Tex Mex restaurant on Sugarloaf Parkway.
Police noted Gilliam downing margaritas throughout the evening until he grew angry at his girlfriend for dancing with another man. When he took his shirt off and began cursing in public, he was asked to leave, according to a Gwinnett police report.
He left but reportedly tried to sneak in a back door less than five minutes later, when the officer spotted and arrested him.
Two accused of gang ties
NORCROSS -- Two Gwinnett teens face felony charges after admitting their allegiance to a gang called "West Side Locotes 13," police said.
Police found Emmanuel Paredes, 18, of Duluth, and Gonzalo Coello, 19, of Norcross, in possession of less than an ounce of marijuana Saturday at a Norcross intersection. Both also carried blue bandannas they said represented the street gang, according to arrest warrants.
Paredes bore a "WSL" tattoo on his forearm, the documents state.
Georgia law makes gang participation a felony when it's done in furtherance of another crime.
Student jailed on threat charge
SNELLVILLE -- A Brookwood High School student was arrested Friday after allegedly threatening a teacher.
Seventeen-year-old sophomore Miles Ezenwekwe faces a felony charge of terroristic threats and acts for the alleged outburst.
The student grew angry when told by a teacher he had to report to a "tardy table" for being late to class, according to a Gwinnett County School Police report.
Ezenwekwe threatened: "I am going to kill someone, I swear," according to his arrest warrant.
He posted $5,700 bond Saturday and was released from the Gwinnett County Jail.
