The Blotter is taken from reports filed with Charleston Police Department between April 4 and April 12.

Blotter of the Week: A West Ashley man’s dog was accused of biting a package delivery person, who told police that the bite didn’t break his skin, but did leave a mark. The dog’s owner, of course, denied allegations. Seems like a simple enough investigation. Have the dog bite the owner and see if the marks match.

We hope it wasn’t discovered after she took a sip 
A downtown woman discovered her car had been broken into after she returned to the vehicle and found the empty cup she left behind to be partially filled with tobacco spit. Yuck.

Confused by all the weed?
A West Ashley woman admitted to police she had an unspecified amount of marijuana in her car, but had none on her person. A quick search revealed the opposite to be true. 

I can’t drive 55
A short 70-plus mile per hour police chase in West Ashley ended when a speeding Hyundai whipped into the parking lot of the local Dodge dealership. The driver reportedly told officers he thought the speed limit was 55.
