georgia woman

In Georgia a code compliance agent entered a woman’s home to serve a violation notice. Only thing, she was in bed sleeping. He yelled at her from her bedroom door to get up and come outside so he could serve the violation. A real invasion of privacy caught on tape.

Update:

July 8, 2012 WJBF.com “A Columbia County Code Compliance Officer won’t face charges after he allegedly entered a woman’s home without her permission.

That’s according to Captain Steve Morris. Jimmy Vowell was placed on administrative leave after Erica Masters accused Vowell of walking into her home unannounced last week to serve a violation for her grass being too long.

No word on when or if he’ll return to work.

Columbia County Administrator Scott Johnson says he has a meeting with his Division Director and the Human Resources manager┬áMonday at 9a.m. to decide how to proceed.”
