Lowndes County, GA -- April 25, 2012 --

On Wednesday, April 25, 2012 deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call at 4406 Johnson Road South, in southern Lowndes County, regarding a domestic dispute in which gun shots had been reported. Upon the arrival of deputies they discovered that Israel Mitchell and his spouse had been involved in a verbal dispute when Mitchell fired at least one shot from a firearm. The female, who was in the yard when the event occurred, fled to a neighbor’s home where she awaited the deputies.

Once the deputies arrived, Israel Mitchell was detained and a search of the property was conducted. This search resulted in the recovery of a .22 caliber rifle, which was loaded, and approximately two {2} pounds of marijuana that was concealed in a cooler.

Israel Mitchell was transported to the Lowndes County Jail where he was booked on charges of Terroristic threats and Possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, both of which are a felony. The marijuana has a street value of approximately four thousand dollars {$4,000.00}. Mitchell will appear in the Lowndes County Magistrate Court tomorrow for an arraignment hearing where a bond will be considered.

During the investigation Israel Mitchell, whose date of birth is March 19, 1974, provided an address in Warner Robins in addition to the Valdosta address as his home.

    Wonder where the "terroristic threats" charge came from. In the 80s there was a radical black hate group in Miami who had all of their "members" use the first name Israel. I think they called themselves the Yahwehs? They distributed flyers on street corners that called for the killings of white people; quoted "scripture" saying all the whites are devils etc. They had a huge warehouse where they had secret speech gone wild.... I've wondered what happened to them. Seems like all the dregs from S. Fla are coming to Tallahassee.
