DUNWOODY, Ga. — Police were dispatched to a sober living facility on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard on reports that a resident relapsed and caused a disturbance Feb. 1.

William Michael Matthews, 56, was arrested and charged with assault.

He was an inpatient of the residential rehab program, which operated out of the Lacota Apartments. The program director told police Matthews admitted that he’d been drinking alcohol and signed a document confirming it. The man was also disturbing other patients in the program, witnesses told police.

Officers claimed Matthews denied medical attention and became “unruly and irate.” When the program director told Matthews he would throw him out of the program, Matthews threatened to break every bone in the director’s body.
