A Lawrenceville woman said she was struck with a purse during a June 3 altercation at a Buford movie theater.
The female, later identified as a 28-year-old Sugar Hill woman, reportedly "started screaming at her about how she was going to beat her up for talking to her mother like that." The Sugar Hill woman then allegedly swung her purse, striking the Lawrenceville woman, before another member of her party pulled her away.
A theater manager was alerted to the confrontation and attempted to calm both parties. The manager later told police the Sugar Hill woman and her party were screaming and yelling at the Lawrenceville woman in the lobby. The manager was able to obtain the contact information for the phone-using woman before she left.
The manager was also able to show the investigating officer video footage of the incident. The video showed the Sugar Hill woman approach the Lawrenceville woman in the hallway and get "extremely close" and speak to the woman before she started swinging her purse.
The officer contacted the phone-using woman at the number provided by the theater manager. The woman gave the officer the Sugar Hill woman's contact information, but said there was no way to speak with the woman at that time.
The Lawrenceville woman indicated she did not wish to prosecute the Sugar Hill woman, but the officer noted in the report the Lawrenceville woman was given the Sugar Hill woman's contact information in order for her to obtain her own warrant if she changed her mind.
