Suspect Description O’ The Week: “Multiple piercings throughout body”
A man wanted by police in North Charleston gave an officer the drivers license of another man. Unfortunately for him, the other man was wanted by the City of Charleston. In a separate incident, a man caught in a vehicle thought to be involved in a purse snatching told police he was his brother. His brother was wanted on burglary and traffic warrants in Berkeley County.
A local high school student was charged for disturbing school and public intoxication after he threw up on the teacher’s desk in study hall and passed out. The teacher carried the student to a wheelchair and called police. We’d go with a toxic chalk dust defense.
Unfortunate Nickname O’ The Week: “Ugly Boy”
A woman attempted to steal a box set of the complete series of Sex and the City on the day of the movie’s premiere. She would have gotten away had she not argued with the stock boy about feminism, flirted with a strapping fellow customer, begged a cashier to propose to her, and asked questions to herself like, “Is two to four years in prison the new 18-months to three?”
A man reported his tools had been stolen from a friend’s truck. The victim couldn’t provide the name of his friend, claiming that he only knew him as “Captain Steve.”
Threat O’ The Week: “If I wasn’t at work, I’d kick your ass.”
The Blotter is taken from City of Charleston police department reports. We’ve added a cartoon and a little commentary. We’ve added a little humor, too. No one has been found guilty. This is not a court of law.
