Threat O' The Week:
"I'm going to stomp your face with my heel over and over again."
Elderly parents are this year's "Get Out of Jail Free" card. Police didn't arrest a woman with cocaine in her car, "due to her being the sole provider for her mother who is 78 and is under the direct care of hospice," according to a police report. Further charges are pending based on the condition of her mother.
A man was arrested for possession of cocaine after rousing an officer's suspicions because, among other factors, he was running in sandals. Could it be that it wasn't Judas after all — just a bad footwear choice from the Lord?
Officers were processing a man for being drunk in public when two of his friends showed up. His buddy told officers he was not going to leave unless he was arrested, too. The other friend asked the guys if she should go too, eventually pitching enough of a fit to be arrested as well. Note to our friends: We will not go with you to jail. However, we will bail you out ... after brunch.
After an employee said he'd had $20 stolen, a bar owner reviewed the surveillance tape. Though it did not show who stole the money, the video did capture another employee stealing two bottles of champagne and a bottle of Jim Beam. Drink up, man. And see if you can find a coworker with an extra $20 to spare.
Drunk O' The Week: "99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 91, 90. Oops, I missed 91."
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.
