(Forsyth County, GA) Here’s a look at recently released reports from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office:

Heroin possession

On June 23, an officer responded to a warrant service at 2645 Springmonte Place. Deputies had contacted Andrew Fisher, who had two warrants for his arrest for simple assault.

“When deputies arrested Andrew and searched his person, a small bag of a white and brownish substance was found in Andrew's right cargo shorts pocket. After testing the substance in a field test kit, it tested positive for heroin. Andrew was the passenger of the vehicle that he returned to this residence. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Zachary Jean-Baptiste,” the officer wrote.

After contacting the driver and passenger, deputies saw a glass pipe with a bowl in the back of the vehicle behind the passenger side.

The pipe contained a white crystal-like substance consistent with methamphetamine inside the pipe. Small bags with a residue of a substance of methamphetamine were found by the deputy.

Officers also found another pipe in the car. The deputy wrote that Fisher admitted to owning both pipes.

Deputies asked Zachary about the bags found near the driver's side in the glove box with a crystal-like substance inside them. He said the bags were his and used them for the marijuana that he would smoke.

“After testing the residue from inside the pipe, the test came back positive for methamphetamine,” the deputy wrote. Jean-Baptiste, 21, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Warrants were executed for possession of methamphetamine, possession of heroin, and possession of drug-related objects against Fisher, 31. He was arrested and transported to the jail.

Aggravated assault

On June 23, deputies responded to 6010 Neisler Road in response to an argument and an individual firing a gun.

“When I arrived, Christopher Peterman was trying to pull out of the driveway in a Nissan Maxima. When I blocked the driveway, he got out of his vehicle. I walked over and asked what happened. He stated that he did not want to get the police involved, but Luis "Kyle" Heard was firing off a gun,” the deputy wrote.

The deputy approached Heard and asked to check him for the gun. The gun was not on his person, and he said he put it in his Jeep.

“I asked Kyle what happened. Kyle stated that he was driving his jeep on Namon Wallace Road, and Christopher was tailgating him. Kyle admitted that he started to ‘brake check’ Christopher. They continued down Namon Wallace Road. Kyle then stopped his jeep. Christopher stopped behind him. Kyle then panicked, accidentally put the vehicle into reverse, and backed into Christopher`s vehicle. Kyle then drove off,” the deputy wrote.

Heard told the deputy he feared Christopher because he was tailgating him and getting out of his vehicle. Kyle went to his home at 6010 Neisler Road and noticed Christopher pulling into his neighbor's driveway in the Nissan Maxima.

“Christopher then pulled into Kyle`s mother`s, Kimberly Heard`s, driveway. He then watched as Christopher began to speak with Kimberly. Kyle then grabbed his firearm and began to walk toward the home. He admitted to firing several ‘warning shots’ into the woods,” the deputy wrote.

The deputy approached Kyle`s Jeep and found a handgun in the front passenger seat.

“I walked down and spoke with Christopher. Christopher recorded a portion of the dispute. I watched a video on his phone showing Kyle approaching Christopher while holding a gun. Kyle was screaming at Christopher, yelling at him to leave. Kyle was erratic, yelling and pacing in the yard. Kyle then screamed at Christopher, ‘I will kill you!’ the deputy wrote.

Kyle Heard, 39, was arrested for aggravated assault, reckless conduct, and discharging a firearm near a roadway.
