Disorderly Conduct

On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, Colquitt Police Department Officer Hollis Smith received a call about Josh Chancey harassing Mrs. Andrea Trimble by Facebook Messenger, saying that he was an undercover cop and also saying that he was Scott Worsley. Officer Smith contacted Chief Scott Worsley and advised him of what was going on. Chief Worsley advised Officer Smith to talk to Josh Chancey about the complaint and advise him to cut out the harassment. Officer Smith went and knocked on the door of Josh Chancey’s residence, and Chancey asked who it was at the door. Officer Smith advised that it was him from the Colquitt Police Department. After a few minutes, Officer Smith knocked on the door again and heard Josh Chancey kick the door, yelling and cursing, and nearly push Officer Smith down a doorstep. Officer Smith went into the residence and placed Josh Chancey in handcuffs for disorderly conduct due to his actions and words of profanity in front of small children that live less than 50 feet away who were sitting on the back steps of their home. Officer Smith advised Chancey’s girlfriend, Arizona, that if she or he made any more contact with Mrs. Trimble that there would be warrants taken out on them for harassment. Officer Smith then transported Josh Chancey to the county jail for booking.


On April 22, 2017, while on patrol in the area of Grow Trailer Park, Captain Dan Stone noticed two people that appeared to be arguing.

Captain Stone got out with the two subjects and asked what they were arguing about.

One of the males, “LA,” advised that George Edward McCray of 275 Old Donalsonville Road, was trying to “rope” him like a cowboy and that he would not leave him alone.

At this time, McCray began to become combative, cursing and loud talking.

The officer advised Mc- Cray to calm down, and he would talk to him in a minute.

He then again became loud and cursing stating he ran the trailer park and could do what he wanted.

Captain Stone went to McCray and began to talk to him. McCray was highly intoxicated to the point that he could barely stand and made no sense while he was talking.

During this time, the officer tried to get a family member to come pick him up because he was too intoxicated to drive.

While Captain Stone was trying to secure him a ride, he became loud and combative, and he was placed under arrest for public drunk.

McCray had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath, his speech was slurred and at times he was incoherent and could barely walk.

He was taken to the Miller County Jail where he was charged with public drunk.
