Man arrested for police threats
An incident on Atomic Road led to the arrest and jailing of an Augusta man who claimed to be God, according to a May 2 report from the North Augusta Department of Public Safety. Taken into custody on a charge of disorderly conduct was Steven Dukes, 49, of Summer Street.
An officer began speaking with a man who sat next to the Gas Plus convenience store at 10258 Atomic Road. A representative of the store told the officer that Dukes was on trespass notice. A check revealed that he was actually on trespass notice for another Gas Plus, and the responding officer then issued a trespass notice for the store on Atomic Road as well.
