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 o' the week: A man was driving on Shadowmoss Parkway near Levin Court late on Jan. 13 when his truck ran into a nearly invisible wall of plastic food wrap. The plastic wrap was stretched across the roadway in thick layers from one "Speed Hump" sign to another. Instead of breaking, the wrap slid up onto the hood of the truck, bending the radio antenna at a sharp angle, then snapping it. The antenna broke the truck's windshield, causing $500 in damage. Wow, who was setting booby traps in that neighborhood, Scooby Doo?
Blotter Threat by a Minor O'The Week: "I'll get out my .45 and shoot all of you!"
On Jan. 14, a man called the cops when, during a clean-up of his attic, he found articles of feminine clothing. Stuffed underneath two feet of insulation and crammed in a corner, he discovered one pair of pale pink lace panties and a white skirt half slip. Both items were covered in multiple stains from an unknown substance. You know what we call the day we find stained women's underwear? The very bestest.
Blotter Threat O' The Week: "I will blow you away."
A teacher at a Johns Island high school watched a student enter her classroom carrying a white cup on Jan. 11. When he walked by, she noticed the strong odor of alcohol coming from the cup. When she asked about its contents, the student said, "It's tea," and threw it in the garbage before running out of the classroom. Yeah, a Long Island iced tea.
