Cobb man's alleged sex taping cited

An Austell man was arrested after he was accused of illegally taping his sexual encounters with more than 30 women, police said Tuesday.

Melvin Jelani Davis, 27, was arrested after a woman told detectives that Davis "sent her photos of the two of them in intimate situations that the female victim was unaware were being taken," said Cobb County police Cpl. Brody Staud.

Davis threatened to publish or e-mail four of the pictures if the woman did not stop talking about him, Detective Debbie Holland said in an arrest warrant.

The suspect was released on $10,000 bond after being charged with eavesdropping, a felony, and possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Detectives found videotapes of Davis with more than 30 women dating to 1999, Staud said.

School officials indicated they knew Danziger was changing his name but did not have paperwork stating that his name had been officially changed.

Alcohol linked to boy's death in fire

As his 5-year-old son, "Little Bobby," pleaded for help in an apartment fire early Sunday morning that would take his life, Bobby J. Fredrick was drunk, according to the arrest warrant. "The accused had been drinking and left the children alone in the apartment," according to a document in Fulton County Superior Court. The 38-year-old Atlanta man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
