Frozen Paradise in news again 

POLICE HAVE one man in custody after allegedly firing at an officer after an incident that began at Frozen Paradise downtown.

Police say a group of males bumped into another in the parking lot of Frozen Paradise around 2:45 a.m. Friday morning. "Words were exchanged, and suspects from one group fired several shots at the car of the second group," police say.

Police in the area heard the shots and responded immediately. The suspects who shot at the car fled the scene in a dark colored SUV. The victims in the other car were not injured, but the vehicle had several bullet holes in it.

Officers spotted a blue Chevy Tahoe at Bay and Warner Streets just before 3 a.m. and gave chase. When the vehicle stopped in the area of Scarborough and Exley Streets, one of the officers saw the passenger exit the vehicle with a gun. The passenger ran, firing a shot at officers in pursuit.

Officers chased the suspect and caught him as he was trying to climb over a fence. They recovered the gun a short time later. The driver of the vehicle escaped on foot.

Facing charges is 20-year-old Jabari ROBINSON of Savannah. Robinson was transported to the Chatham County Detention Center. Police are still searching for the driver of the vehicle.

    I arrived at the Pawn Shop and Gun Store with our family's prized widescreen TVs, valued at $350 each. 'I'll give you 90 bucks,' said the cashier. As she was counting my money, I could see across the room that our chairs had already been turned upside-down and branded with the orange 'evicted' sign.
