Man arrested for showing self at Starbucks


An intoxicated man who flashed a local Starbucks employee Monday was arrested later that day by Fayette County sheriff’s investigators, officials said.

Ryan Haynes, 21, of Fayetteville, was also intoxicated at the time, investigators said.

The victim was a female Starbucks employee, who was cleaning the men’s room when Haynes came in and began to use the facility, officials said. The woman asked him to wait until she finished but he declined … and soon after, Haynes turned around and exposed himself to the woman, making a crude remark, officials said.

The incident took place at the Starbucks location on Ga. Highway 54 West just outside Peachtree City in the Peachtree East Shopping Center.

Haynes was charged with public indecency and public intoxication.

On Wednesday sheriff’s investigators arrested three people hours after they committed a burglary at a home on Haddock Point in south Fayette County. Detectives also found items taken from a home on Marron Road the same day, and a burglary Sept. 13 at a residence on Old Greenville Road.

Arrested and charged with burglary were Quinton Davis, 22, of Jonesboro, David Palmer, 20, of Rex and Christian Riggins, 19, of Jonesboro, sheriff’s officials said.

The three suspects are believed to have forced their way into the Haddock Point residence and took items from the home, officials said. Some of the stolen goods were recovered and returned to the victim.

The break in the case came when alert witnesses noticed a suspicious vehicle Sept. 29 which led to the arrests in the case, detectives said. Residents are encouraged to report any suspicious vehicles, persons or activity by calling 911 or 770-461-HELP (4357).

Homeowners are also encouraged to keep a list of all serial numbers and a description of their property that will help investigators track down items that are stolen
