The Blotter is taken from reports filed with area police departments.

Blotter of the week: A Charleston police officer responded Nov. 13 to a reported disturbance near King Street Cabaret on upper King Street. Police reported a woman was shouting at a bouncer about her husband saying she was there to “piss him off.” The bouncer said she did doughnuts in her car in a parking lot and damaged a fence. She kept yelling that she wanted to upset her husband by becoming a cabaret dancer. She was arrested for disorderly conduct. No word on whether she got the gig. 

High-end taste
Charleston police responded Nov. 14 to Sephora downtown after the store manager reported a theft. The manager said four women wearing masks stole 56 Tom Ford and Chanel perfumes totaling $9,060. They are still at large – and probably smell great. 

At least one was good-looking
A man with a dog was walking downtown and threatening people, according to a Nov. 18 Charleston police report. An officer reported the man was visibly drunk and smelled like booze. The man told police he “probably had a pint” to drink before he was arrested for public intoxication. Police noted the man’s dog named Handsome was turned over to animal control. Sometimes good looks just aren’t enough.
