I advised him the reason that he had been stopped was for the brake light in the rear window not working. I requested his driver’s license and Insurance at that time.

On November 4th, 2010 Cordele Police met with Deanna Rainey at the Police Department. Rainey was inquiring about getting a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Tony Tai. She stated that she and Tai had lived together for the past ten months, and at times, he looses his temper and breaks things around the house. She said there has been times he pushes her as well. She stated that none of these incidents had been reported in the past. She enquired about removing Tai from the apartment lease, because he has now moved out, and she doesn’t want him to return. I referred her to the Magistrate Court to help her figure that out. I also advised her to speak to her landlord about changing the locks, due to him still having a key. I advised her that due to her having no previous report and nothing actively occurring, it might be difficult to achieve a restraining order. I told her I would document the conversation and if she gets him removed from the lease, and he returns, we can then trespass him at that time.
