Here are some of the stranger Northeast Georgia police stories of the week.
At the Publix in Winder, a man agreed to hold a chihuahua for another customer who said he was going in to claim a winning lottery ticket. Police were called after the man reported the chihuahua bit him on the nose and cut his upper lip. The same day at the Winder Ingles, a man was charged with public intoxication after refusing to stop drinking his beer outside the store.
