The Blotter is taken from reports filed Nov. 28 to Dec. 6 with area police departments.

Blotter of week: A woman’s 16-year-old son was being so disobedient and defiant that she called the Charleston police Nov. 30, according to a police report. Her son was reportedly upset that she didn’t make any food for him. The son’s therapist advised the parents to call the police if his behavior was inciting fear and anxiety. When officers arrived at the home, they got him “to relax and go to bed.” No word on whether they tucked him in.

Remote real estate
Charleston police received a call from a man who lives in Ohio and said he owns a property on Johns Island. He reported that a man had stolen his identity and attempted to sell the property by listing it for sale at $499,000. The rest of the police report was redacted, so no word on whether the perpetrator snagged an offer. 

Mixup 
An intoxicated man wandered into a West Ashley hotel room and fell asleep on a couch Dec. 3, according to a police report. Turns out it wasn’t his room, so the occupant called the cops. The drunk intruder was arrested for disorderly conduct.
