Opossum Killed After Charging County Cop

   Sheriff’s Corporal Christy Johnson reported a discharge of firearms in the line of duty from an incident Sunday morning. The officer was dispatched to a location on Michelin Drive, Laurens at 8:43 yesterday morning, where a woman reported an opossum was hanging around the location and refusing to leave. She said she thought that was strange. When Corporal Johnson located the animal it began to hiss at her, and began to charge in her direction as if to attack the deputy. She then drew her weapon and shot the animal.
