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.
Blotter Misspelling O’The Week: Charelston
On July 9, a woman noticed her iPod was missing from her bedroom dresser. When reporting the missing item, she mentioned there was an inscription on the back reading, “Thinking of me while you listen? Priceless. —D.D.” Even if her MP3 player was stolen, we all know what the real crime here was.
The manager of a downtown tourists’ liaison noticed a man squatting in the grass next to the building. The man’s gray overalls were around his ankles, and he was using a napkin as toilet paper. When confronted, the man tried to hide in the bushes but was arrested. Shit!
On July 9, the Reverend of a Meeting Street church was blocked by two men while trying to enter the building. They handed him a paper informing him he’d been voted out of his position. The Rev. pushed by the men and ran into the back office of the church, all the while telling the men to “be children of God.” Eventually, he left the building after being asked. At least he knows from the good Rev. Run’s success that he can always fall back on a rap career.
Blotter WTF O’ The Week: “White people should not be treated like this.”
A man was taking a photograph in front of his Henrietta Street home on July 9 when a neighbor drove up next to him in his truck. “You almost took my arm off,” the shutterbug said, which made the driver of the truck irate. “This is my street. You don’t live here,” said the driver, who went back to his truck and grabbed a chrome automatic handgun and pointed it at the other man. The man with the gun was eventually arrested just a few houses down on the same street.
