On Feb. 12, a man's ex-girlfriend came to his house and was let in by his roommate to collect her things. Instead of getting her stuff, she began smashing items around the house, including four picture frames, a gold watch, and a wooden keepsake box. As if that weren't enough, she fled the house with the dude's yellow lab, which was soon returned to him after she checked herself into a psychiatric hospital. And they all lived happily ever after.

Last August, a West Ashley woman received two letters intended for her son through a Folly Beach surf shop. The first letter requested an autographed picture of the boy, who surfs competitively along the East Coast. It also included two pictures of an unidentified young man. The second letter apologized for the first, and said there would be no more correspondence. Police recently found that the author, although polite, is a convicted sex offender currently incarcerated in Arizona.

On Feb. 11, a woman sleeping in a West Ashley motel was awakened by her ex-boyfriend who entered her room, punched her in the face once, and ran away. Although she has a child with the man, she wasn't sure how he knew she was staying there.

Blotter Bogus Cocaine Explanation O' The Week:

"That ain't nothing. That's just laundry soap."

A teacher at a local community college was approached at the end of last semester by a female student who said she was in love with her and wanted to pursue a relationship. The teacher received constant calls, hang-ups, and text messages. Once, the ex-student showed up outside her classroom, yelling, "Happy New Year!" and running away. Finally, the teacher notified police when her admirer followed her home from work one night.

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.
