This juicy excerpt may have made its way into PP last week, but it’s worth reviewing as the saga continues today, and likely on into the year, if we’re lucky.
Exhibit A: See how education operatives live in Clayton County… when they bother to live there at all. From the AJC’s new Entertainment & Education beat reporter, Megan Matteucci:
Clayton police learned about Haynes’ apparent Cobb County residence after discovering the board member was arrested Dec. 2 in a domestic dispute in Marietta.
Juan Green, who described himself as Haynes’ live-in boyfriend for five years, told Marietta police Haynes assaulted him.
Haynes, 37, returned to the couple’s Marietta apartment about 4 a.m. and started a fight over missing condoms, Green told police.
During the dispute, Haynes slapped Green, 31, on the face, pushed him to the floor and strangled him, according to a police report.
Marietta police arrested Haynes on charges of simple battery. He is scheduled to appear in Cobb Magistrate Court this morning.
In a written statement issued Wednesday night, Haynes said he was falsely arrested while trying to defend himself. Haynes said a friend attacked him during an dispute over a woman. He also disputed Green’s allegations about their relationship, calling it “an unmitigated lie without one scintilla of truth.”
On Thursday, Green said he would talk with a reporter only if he was paid. Otherwise, Haynes could speak for him, Green said.
Full circus act here. But wait! There’s more! Megan reports today that Haynes says he was treated unfairly when his fellow Clayton County School Board
members clowns voted him off the island Monday night.
And yet another board clown says a mass resignation of the whole freak show would harm… the children.
