Cat Fight

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A May incident at a northeast Atlanta apartment has led to the resignation of three DeKalb County police officers.

According to DeKalb County police incident reports, one of the officers tried to kick open the apartment door where two others were watching TV.

Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said an internal investigation involving the three former officers is ongoing and will take weeks to complete.

According to the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council, an agency that certifies police officers and tracks their employment statuses, Richshanna Chadrika Rich, Janet M. Sutton and Capt. Vickie S. Logan resigned last week in lieu of termination.

The incident report, which says all the officers are friends, shows that on May 5, Rich tried to kick in the door to Sutton’s apartment.

Police said Sutton was in her northeast Atlanta apartment around 11 p.m. watching a movie with Logan when Rich began banging loudly at the door.

“After the second knock, the suspect began kicking at the door hard enough to cause the frame near the hinges to splinter,” the police report reads.

Logan, a 15-year veteran, went to a side room where she could see the front door and saw Rich kicking at the door, police said.

When Sutton answered the door, police said Rich demanded that a toolbox be returned to her, then tried to force her way into the apartment.

Sutton was able to force Rich back and close the door, but not before Rich snatched a scarf from Sutton’s head, according to police reports.

Rich then left, police said. It is unclear whether the former officers were off-duty.

Sutton had been with the department for eight years, according to records from Georgia P.O.S.T. Rich was with the department less than two years.

None of the women could be reached for comment.

Good riddance! This is just more damage from Bolton we're still dealing with. Bolton hired those obnoxious, loud mouth, arrogant twins. He changed the rules so Vickie Logan could take the Lt's test after being a Sgt for only a few months. Vickie Logan has had everything handed to her and gotten away with too much for too long. She's always protected those bratty twins, but now we know why! Finally, someone had the balls to say enough is enough! Good move, Chief!

I find it sad and disgusting that things like this make the news. Officers make bad decisions on their off time all the time. It's not news worthy.

What was the purpose of Captin Vickie Logan being terminated, sounds like she was just there watching a movie-smh. It has to be more to the story!

I swear I don't care for neither one of them but why in the hell is this trash in the news. Who is releasing information to the AJC for us to be their main topic all the Damn time. This type of shit happens everyday its crazy that a captain was caught in the middle.

Good riddance Logan fucked over enough people while she was in IA doing God's work. Good to see the pendulum swing the other way

Ajc needs to be sitting at recorders court there's so many safety violations along with people overcrowding standing up this is a fire hazard and the fire Marshall be called. People having dehydration falling out in line. Someone needs to be fired for this having so many cases there in one day. Clearly this is a hazard and if some dies from heat stroke I would be have a lawsuit. All news channels need to focus on recorders court.

SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knew this one was in the making. Everyone that has been choosing to ignore and look the other way should have to show their face to! You chiefs and majors know who you are.

Non-story.. ..department rules appear to have been violated.... this is not domestic violence if they don't or haven't lived together.... therefore, if the victim of the kicking of the door doesn't want to prosecute...there is no crime.

This is a soap opera not worthy of the ink the AJC used to print the story. With their guardian angel retired, it didn't get swept under the rug.....people got fired for stupidly assuming they could continue operating outside the policy manual.

Weeks to complete? Why does it take IA so long to complete an investigation? Major Felony can have a murder case solved and sent to the DA's office in a day or two.

It's nice to hear that John Gardner from the FOP brought up a COLA for retirees at the May pension meeting.Too bad we don't get the same attention from our elected rep. (A COLA for retirees should be on the agenda for every meeting till one is awarded.) Thats what I heard anyway. Am I correct?

Wasn't logan one of Higgy's protected one's at one time until she could stand on her own two feet? Along with Farley, KK and the Wiz. before him? It's amazing how some people when given the keys to a car, in this case, rank ,just don't know how to handle it. Like a stupid teenager. You were given the answers Logan, you took the test. All you had to do was act like a Capt. BYE Bye lmaol. By the way all those above are GONEEEEEEE

I feel sorry for the 2 younger females. Clearly that supervisor should have been the one with the common sense in that situation. Sad, just sad. Oh well. Everyone else needs to learn from this situation...Chief A is not playing with yall no more. He is not accepting foolishness. Such a shame!

Blogmaster, the title you gave this story is very sexist. I'm disappointed in you. You lost credibility with a good veteran officer.

Why would Sutton & Logan be terminated..? I can understand Rich but the other 2 were "watching a movie".....?

Stupid behavior for ruining careers. Was it really worth it or is this the norm?

They were all sworn to protect the citizens of this county. They went through the academy for 26 weeks and the end result now appears, they did it over a stupid argument. If they wanted to argue in the first place, then why become LE?

The process of weeding out of who should become LE and who should't evidently didn't catch these persons at the beginning.

Anyway one looks at, it simply boils down to blatant stupidity and nothing else.

You guys really need to seriously start scripting this stuff and get a production company to film it. You got the next runaway hit TV reality show. Small town security got nothing on you. An absolute laughingstock. More backstabbing, infighting, and childish behavior than all the real housewives of Orange Co., New York, and Atlanta combined. Sad thing though; they give you a badge, gun, and power but you can't even barely follow the laws you are supposed to enforce. What is your latest average? An officer a month getting arrested? And still you wonder why no one respects you. Just go back read the posts on this blog because its painfully obvious you guys don't respect each other or yourselves. Been there, worked there, and glad I'm gone. But thanks for the entertainment. It's been fun watching you guys self destruct.

Logan and the Sutton aren't gone because of what happened at the apartment, they're gone for lying to IA about the nature of their relationship.

Looks like Ret. Lt. John Gardner may be the unofficial retiree pension representative. Maybe we should remember him at the next rep election.Thanks for attending the pension meetings and looking out for us Lieutenant.

You guys throw a lot of shade towards Logan and the twins. You guys sound like a bunch of hating ass bitches!!! Get your own life geez

rich wasn't arrested because the "victim" did not seek a warrant apparently. Family violence law did not apply in this case.

old warhorse said...

re; 8:56..UNBELIEVEABLE! REALLY!! Could you poss be any more "unprofessional"? That is exactly what is wrong,not only with the reputation and professional status of this dept,but this entire profession! I can't believe they even let you wear a D.K.P.D. uniform. Not only do you express yourself poorly, but "ghetto",to boot. You are precisely what is wrong with this dept,and this profession! THANK YOU FED GOVT !!! I apologise to all the citizen's that read this blog. This employee DOES NOT REPRESENT THE MAIN STREAM/PROFESSIONAL POLICE OFFICER THAT WORK'S FOR DEKALB POLICE!!!!

8:56pm, they earned al of this attention they are getting. Logan was handed every promotion she got on a silver platter. She treated people like crap, except for those twins. Ask people at Tucker how often vacation or training requests were denied because the twins already had off or were in that class. People don't like those three for very good reasons!

Auburn testing procedures got her promoted. Look at everyone who has high rank and listen to them speak and you decide.

how in the world do these twins and a police captain get away with such behavior under chiefs noses for so long? This department needs more OVERSIGHT! We all need to be accountable and police each other. Any fraternization or alleged fraternization whether its male/female or female/female, strait or "Gay"-(tucker catfight)should be investigated immediatly. Because when personal affairs mix with buisness affairs, DeKalb county police gets the black eye, so we all get the black eye. Officers shouldnt be afraid to call an officer out for wrong doing for fear of retaliation from their supervisor because their in a relationship. And whats even worst, is apparently officers knew for quite some time. fraternization should be reported along with any other violations of county policy!! They are all the same. Do your job people!! Lets get it together dkpd.

Hey I only speak the truth because I saw it FIRST hand..this aint no rumor...Let's not talk about her relationship with the WIZ and Holmes...naw yall aint got the stomach for that. Good people have left the Department b\c folks like her have gotten a way with murder. Time "To tell the truth and shame the devil". I guess her protection from Lane-Wordard or Williams, what ever she goes by these days, didn't work this time...she got what she deserved..PERIOD.....with the Ellis indictment, look for more heads to roll!!!
