Versus O' The Week:
Golf club vs. kitchen knife. Winner: Golf club.
Threat O' The Week: "I'm coming back to Charleston. One of us will be happy and the other will not."
Unfortunate Comments To An Officer O' The Week: "I smoke crack and I have been drinking," "Yes, officer, I have been drinking and have had too much to drink to drive probably," and "You don't have to test it. It's crack. I promise."

A West Ashley store reported that they had received a fake $20 bill. The phony money wasn't identified until after the customer had left the store, when the manager noticed there was nothing printed on the back. Not even "In Grinch We Trust"?
Retracted Threat O' The Week: After first telling his ex-girlfriend that "you going to cause me to kill you," a man then said, "you ain't worth killing to go to prison."
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.
