Posted on 07/09/2012 3:14:40 PM PDT by Teflonic
A woman got the shock of her life when she woke up to find a stranger in her bedroom, yelling at her to wake up because her grass was too long.
Erica Masters was asleep when Columbia County Code Compliance Officer Jimmy Vowell entered her Martinez, Georgia, home without permission to serve a violation notice for her overgrown lawn.
After knocking on the woman's door a few times, Vowell let himself and made his way into her bedroom, which was captured on surveillance video.
He let himself in and actually came through the house and into my bedroom. And yelled at me to wake me up, to let me know that I needed to come back outside and sign the violation notice,' Masters told WJBF.COM.
I woke up, I didn't have my glasses on or my contacts in and all I see is this big burly figure standing in my doorway. A big, huge guy with a grey shirt. It scared the mess out of me.
Vowell, who has been placed on administrative leave, will not face criminal charges, it has been revealed.

Guess he was lucky he wasn’t shot.
I fear if this happened in our house, that would be one dead fat man.
Sumbitch would have been dead had he tried this at my home.
my two big dogs would have had him for breakfast.
surely this is breaking and entering? Trespassing?
That guy would look like a 400 lb block of swiss cheese with 5.56 fragments if he tried that at my house.
The area looks very rural, why the heck are grass requirements being enforced there anyway? She should just spread a 50lb bag of wildflower seeds over the whole front of the house and be done with it.
Appalling. But I have to ask, how did he let himself in? Was the food unlocked? Or did he break in?
The guy is none too smart.
They have guns and castle laws in GA. If she had a gun and heard him coming down the hallway she could have toasted him right there - and been within her rights.
He’s right, her yard is a mess!
He’d weigh a bit less after the 00 buckshot diet. As those in the know say, “heavy buckshot at close ranges remove meat and bone.”
Jimmy is quite fortunate that his name is not preceeded by the words “the late”...
Wake me up that way and it will be Mossberg time!
News as it should be...
“The woman told police officers that she was awakened by a large, strange man standing over her while she was sleeping in her bed and he began yelling at her. “I thought that he was crazy... I thought that he was going to rape or kill me... so I shot him once in the head and twice in the chest”.
He has that over-aged Cartman look to him.
The BTK murderer took a long break in his murderous rampage.
Why you ask?
He was deriving enough pleasure administratively torturing people as a code enforcer that he didnt feel the need to Bind, Torture and Kill young women.
What does that tell you?
