Blotter: The week in crime 

Highlights from the City of Charleston police reports

BLOTTER O' THE WEEK: A 20-year-old college student fled police when he was caught walking down the street with two cases of beer. During the chase, the student ran down an alley and scaled a 12-foot-tall fence. Once on the other side, he fell on an air conditioning unit, pulling his groin. He was later identified because he dropped his cell phone in the fall. Officers called his parents and tracked him down at a nearby hospital.

A man was able to track down his stolen car when he found the wheels and rims on another car driving through his neighborhood.

Officers held off on arresting a suspect with 32 outstanding warrants because she was at her mother's funeral. They picked her up on the way out of the cemetery.

Officers asked a DUI suspect what her highest level of education was. "3.5," she said. The officer noted, "I again asked for her highest level of education and she continually replied different numbers that resembled a grade point average."

ITEMS STOLEN THIS WEEK: A GPS unit and a laptop.

ROAD RAGE THREAT O' THE WEEK "Bitch, stop the car and see what happens."

Caught trying to get rid of some cocaine, a suspect told officers, "I just like to sprinkle it on my weed. I'm not a junkie or anything."

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.
