Man illegally dumps RV tanks in drainage ditch

Ed Fricks said he was awaiting the arrival of his grandchildren Wednesday at Zaxby's restaurant on Spring Avenue Southwest when he saw a man drive up in a Class C motor home.

"He backed into the dead end and looked suspicious," said Fricks, a Decatur revenue inspector. "He walked to the back end of the motor home, looked at his tire, looked up toward Zaxby's, pretended to raise the hood, and I thought, 'This man is crazy.'

The man faces possible charges of criminal littering and violation of health codes. Criminal littering is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a $250 fine for a first conviction. Full Story...
