Spats with grandparents bring felony charges for 2 men


Two local men are in jail after separate incidents in which they were less than respectful to their elderly family members.

Shane Spiro, 32, of Brooks was arrested Aug. 5 and charged with terroristic threats and acts. The charge stems from his threat to burn down his grandparents’ house and harm them, according to a Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Chaz Moore, 24, of Fayetteville was arrested the same day after a domestic incident with his grandmother at a residence. The grandmother alleged that he struck her during the argument. He faces felony charges of probation/parole violation, elder abuse, and false imprisonment along with a lesser charge of simple battery/family violence.

Elsewhere in the county, a Lithonia man being held at Henry County Jail was arrested Aug. 4 by Fayette authorities on a felony charge of theft by taking, according to the Fayette County Jail log. The FCSO spokesman said Martin Logan, 37, had a moving business and failed to deliver one item, a high-end zero-turn lawn mower, to its intended destination.

An Aug. 4 traffic stop led to a felony drug arrest for a Dunwoody man. The stop took place shortly before 11 a.m. at Buckeye Road and Oakridge Trail, according to reports.

The vehicle had suspended registration and no valid insurance, according to an FCSO spokesman. The deputy who made the stop discovered marijuana and two Schedule I substances which turned out to be cocaine and ecstasy.

Charlie Smith, 31, was charged with two felony counts of drug possession/sale/manufacture along with several traffic charges, including no proof of insurance, driving with a suspended license, marijuana possession, and driving with suspended registration.


  1. This makes me very sad. I remember when Shane was in 9th grade. He had little to no parental involvement then, but he was polite and respectful when he came to school (which was not often). He never finished 9th grade. I hope he gets his life together.
