Blotter: Three PBRs to the wind 


Blotter o' the week: three pints of PBR were enough to land a guy in jail for a DUI. Charleston residency revoked.

An employee at a King Street bar chased down a man who assaulted another patron, eventually tackling him and restraining him at a garage until an officer arrived. Talk about customer service.

A West Ashley woman walked to her car in the morning to find both front doors open. Her wallet, which included her passport, driver's license, bank cards, and $100 in cash, was missing from the center console.

Someone rammed into the gate of a King Street church and pushed it off its track, causing an estimated $2,000 in damage.

A woman left her front door unlocked and returned home to find that someone stole her PlayStation 4, along with one controller, from her room.

Someone broke into a locked cabinet at a downtown private school and stole 27 Adderall and Ritalin pills that were prescribed to kids.

Officers responded to a "disturbance between sanitation workers" in Harleston Village. One of the janitors was arrested on a warrant for aggravated assault from last June.

A high schooler texted a middle schooler some scary stuff, including, "Imma blow the school up," and, "I'm gonna kill the teacher." During an interview with an officer, the sender said the messages were inspired by a cell phone game she was mad at, and were not meant as threats to anyone's life.

A former employee at a downtown property management company was not re-hired due to his extensive criminal record. Last month, a security camera caught him disabling the motion sensors near the back of one of the company's buildings, cutting the Ethernet cord that led inside (possibly thinking it would disable the camera), and climbing up to the second story.

A woman tried to steal four bottles of wine worth a combined total of $212 from a West Ashley department store.

A married couple was kicked out of a local homeless shelter for missing curfew. A former friend ran into them and offered the woman a place to stay. When she refused to leave her husband and go stay with him, the man threw a bike at her head.

A divorced couple was supposed to meet and work out a custody agreement regarding their three kids, but the conversation turned into an argument that ended with the woman's current boyfriend threatening her ex, saying, "You are a punk bitch, come get your ass whooped."

A man hopped off a pickup truck at a parking lot, walked past a woman's car as she sat inside, and dragged a key from the front side panel all the way to the trunk, causing an estimated $300 in damage. She has no idea who he was.
