BLOTTER O' THE WEEK: A man says he fell asleep watching a movie on his laptop. When he woke up, the laptop was gone.
An unknown person put a man's telephone number in a Craigslist ad, stating that he was trying to unload a five gallon jar full of quarters, dimes, and nickels. The victim has changed his number because of all the calls he's received.
Stolen Items O' The Week: Two iPods, two GPS units, three bikes, and a guitar amplifier (do you even need those things anymore now that we have Guitar Hero?)
Witnesses contacted police when they saw a car dragging a bicycle the wrong way down a one-way street. When found, the driver said he was carrying the bike in the trunk and it must have fallen out. Eventually charged with DUI, the man told officers, "I'm already fucked. I'm stuck like Chuck."
Asked where he was coming from, a driver stopped downtown for suspected DUI told officers, "Folly Beach." Asked where he was going, the man said, "Folly Beach." Asked how much he'd had to drink, the man said, "3 to 20 drinks." You can't go wrong with that kind of spread.
A man has been receiving threatening calls from a distant cousin, including one that included "You are the epitome of a fucking white trash redneck ... Next time you see me, you better put your fists up because this rooter (rooster?) is gonna rock your world bitch."
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.
