You can’t even pick your children up at school without worrying about being arrested — if you’ve got outstanding warrants.
A Homer couple found that out first hand when they were arrested in the parking lot of Commerce Primary School last week.
According to the arrest report, an officer received information that a man was in the parking lot who had outstanding warrants.
The officer identified James Cory Chambers, 22, of P.O. Box 203, Homer, and arrested him on a probation violation warrant for a drug charge in Jackson County, a probation violation charge stemming from a burglary conviction in Banks County and an aggravated assault charge from Habersham County.
A check of the state’s criminal database turned out that the other person in the vehicle, Misty Lee Chambers, 28, of the same address, had similar relationships with law enforcement agencies.
She was booked on a failure to appear warrant from the Cornelia Police Department relating to a DUI (driving under the influence of intoxicants) charge, and felony charges of theft by receiving and credit card fraud from the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office.

This was done in the parking lot of the school? Did any students see this happen? I would think so. I just hope that the arrested couple's child/children don't get teased about this for too long. Then again, if they were picking up their child/children you'd think that their child/children as well as their peers would have witnessed the arrest while standing right beside their parents firsthand. Something sounds wrong.
