The Moultrie News

Heated arguments in Brickyard Plantation, bar-room fights on Shem Creek, slurred words and the stench of booze on Rifle Range Road, road rage incidents on the Arthur Ravenel Bridge, crackheads in the hotels, lame excuses and pitiful arguments in the Old Village, tearful confessions along Mathis Ferry — the weekly police blotter in the long-running Moultrie News covers it all. News Editor Sully Witte took the column over in 2002 and regularly sifts through piles of East Cooper crime reports and prints only the funniest and most shocking. “I try to follow the unwritten theme of ‘only in Mt. Pleasant,'” she says. “There’s a fine line between how funny I actually want to be and what will offend readers.” There’s an extended version of the blotter online, along with a new comments section. Check it out (but don’t land in it!).
