A few unlit Molotov cocktails were found in Northeast Atlanta yesterday near T.I.’s Grand Hustle studios. According to news reports, two bottles filled with an unknown liquid suspected of being Molotov cocktails was tossed at the office windows of the studio early Thursday morning.
The Atlanta police SWAT team was sent to the address after an Atlanta Police officer was flagged down by a resident and advised the officer that he observed two bottles of what appeared to be molotov cocktails full of an unknown liquid near the front porch, said Eric Schwartz, Atlanta police spokesman.
Jason Geter, CEO of Grand Hustle, explained that an alarm went off between 2:30 and 3 a.m. Thursday (November 19) at the office and Grand Hustle staff discovered that one of the office windows had been cracked after someone had tossed a “40-ounce bottle” at it.
Police have not named any suspects, but Geter and company have their own ideas of who the culprit could be. Check out the audio of Jason’s details of the event below: Continue Reading…

This social networking this is way outta control. First a MARTA bus driver gets suspended after a passenger twitpics him using his cell and now a teacher has been forced to resign over Facebook photos! Ashley Payne, a former Georgia high school teacher is smack dab in the middle of the most recent social networking controversy. Payne was forced to resign, after school administrators questioned the material posted on her Facebook page. Payne says she had pictures of her trip to Europe on the site and wrote about a game she plays with friends. She says none of the material was inappropriate, but a parent complained about a picture of her holding a drink in her hand.
I had no idea how a parent could have seen something like that on my page cause I had everything set to private. I wasn’t friends with any students. I didn’t give any access to students or parents.
The photo below is one of the pics that got Payne fired. She was holding a glass of Guinness Beer after visiting a brewery in Dublin:
