Blotter O’
The Week:


One victim was stabbed and another dislocated his arm when a fight broke out after a spades game downtown. You never hear about this stuff happening after
a kick-ass game
of Uno.

Items stolen this week: Four GPS units, four bikes, and three laptops.

A James Island man reported that his car was broken into. Items stolen included 400 rap CDs worth $4,000. Thank goodness he left his Joaquin Phoenix CD at home.

Threat O’ The Week: “I will live longer than you. I will have your ass. You think this is over. I will get you. I will kill you.”

Abandoning the notion that you should only take what you can carry, a thief tried to steal seven bottles of liquor from a downtown shop. He dropped two on his way out the door and ended up breaking a car windshield when he tried to throw the remaining bottles over a fence.

A man recently released from prison told an officer that a friend had given him drugs to sell so that he could get back on his feet. Finally, an economic stimulus package that doesn’t need a flow chart to make sense.

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.
