    The pervy jogger who slapped a TV reporter’s behind during a 10K in Georgia has been identified by officials — and banned from future races. Race organizers had immediately vowed to find the handsy creep who left WSAV-TV anchor Alex Bozarjian feeling “violated, objectified, and embarrassed” while she reported on Saturday’s Savannah Bridge Run. “Yesterday afternoon we identified him and shared his information with the reporter and her station,” the Savannah Sports Council tweeted, without revealing his name publicly. “We will not tolerate behavior like this at a Savannah Sports Council event,” the council said in another post. “We have...

The event was coordinated by the Rev. Clarence Teddy Williams, owner of the consulting firm, The Trigon Group, who declined to discuss the entry policy. Former Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson declined to comment before going inside, as did Chatham County Commissioner...

    It was about 11 p.m., an hour before the end of Emelia Holden’s waitress shift late last month, when she felt the hand grab her backside. Holden, 21, had just finished taking a customer’s order and placing a stack of menus on an unoccupied table in the small restaurant, Vinnie Van Go-Go’s pizzeria in Savannah, Ga. At first she thought it might have been her female co-worker, she recalled to local CBS affiliate WTOC. But as she turned around, she saw that it was a customer walking past her, a 31-year-old man police later identified as Ryan Cherwinski of Palm...

Bold added.  From wtoc.com: The city has had a lot of issues, but city council members managed to narrow them down to a list of just six items.

    A military fiancée who proudly boasts an 'I Love My Soldier' bumper sticker was shocked to find a spiteful letter slapped on her windshield that attacked her and threatened violence for supporting the army.

The venomous letter personally attacked Wilson's fiancee for not being the hero she believes him to be and then frightened her when it finished up by calling...
