FORMER REP. ATKINS ARRESTED BY DSP THIS PAST FRIDAY
WGMD News has learned that former Delaware State Representative John Atkins (D), 46, of Millsboro, was arrested by Delaware State Police Friday night, June 3, 2016. Sgt. Richard Bratz, state police spokesman, said Sunday evening that Atkins has been charged with offensive touching and criminal mischief.
Police tell WGMD the 38 year-old female victim (Atkins’ ex-girlfriend) had given Atkins permission to remove his property from her residence on Evelynton Road in Lewes, but when she returned home and discovered he had taken other items as well, an arugment ensued. The woman got into Atkins’ vehicle and began striking his property in an attempt to damage it, and Atkins then pushed her against her own vehicle. He damaged her vehicle by kicking it before driving away. He later reported to Troop 7 in Lewes where he was charged and later released on a $1,000 unsecured bond.
