Woman barred from neighbor’s house after racist harassment

A woman was barred from her neighbor’s property for two years after repeatedly harassing and yelling racial slurs at her, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police Department incident report.

The woman who lives in the house told the police on July 29 that the other woman had come to her house multiple times to scream curses at her, and had left an insulting note in her mailbox. She said she was worried the woman would come while her elderly mother was in the house with her. She showed police a video from July 28 where the woman repeatedly screamed a racial slur outside her house while under the influence, according to the report.

Police made contact with the woman, who appeared to be a drug user, and barred her for two years from her neighbor’s house, according to the report.
