County Officer Fired for Entering Woman's Bedroom

MARTINEZ, Ga. (AP) -- A county worker in eastern Georgia is out of work after entering a woman's home and walking into her bedroom to order her to cut her grass.

Columbia County Administrator Scott Johnson says county compliance officer Jimmy Vowell was fired for violating county policy and providing a false statement to a supervisor.

WJBF-TV broadcast video of the incident, which occurred at the home of Erica Masters in Martinez. Surveillance cameras were operating when a man came in.

Masters says she was asleep Monday when a man walked into her bedroom and yelled to wake her up. She says he ordered her to come outside to sign a violation notice for her grass being too long.

Masters says seeing the strange man in her home was scary.

    She didn't have her doors locked ? Mine are locked with 2 locks in case one fails. I can't believe someone would be stupid enough to go unannounced into someones home. Also I don't know how she could go to sleep without making sure her doors were locked.This woman is very lucky, this man could have been a serial killer.
