As Twitchy told you yesterday, after walking back her earlier walkback about being “verbally assaulted” by a man telling her to “go back to where [she] came from,” Georgia State Rep. Erica Thomas said at a press conference that she wanted police to charge Eric Sparkes with … well, we’re not sure exactly.
Guess the police weren’t sure, either, because today, they said they won’t be filing any charges:

Cobb Police won’t file any charges involving the run-in between Georgia Rep. @itsericathomas and a man upset that she had too many items in the express lane at Publix. #gapol pic.twitter.com/dxQuhKtYbw

Bummer, Erica. Tough break.
Cue sad trombone.

What were they even investigating?

Serious question: What charge were they even considering?

Time well spent. What exactly would the crime have been ?

What a waste of resources and outrage.

If the police should be filing charges against anyone, it’s against Thomas.
@itsericathomas should be sent the bill for the PD manpower this took. What a disgraceful human being she is.

I hope Mr. Sparkes sues the bejesus out of her.
