Highlights from City of Charleston police reports

Blotter O' The Week:

A liquor store owner realized a man was trying to steal some bottles because the suspect had bulges under his shirt and was "walking like a duck."

Versus O' The Week: Glass cup vs. walking cane vs. scissors

A meter maid complained recently that a car owner hit her in the arm while she was writing a parking ticket. The man denied punching her. It's unclear why he didn't just use the "punch buggy" defense.

Ironic Theft O' The Week: A lock

Ironic Theft Device O' The Week: A camouflage bag

Drunk O' The Week: A man pulled over for DUI attempted to count to 15 using his fingers.

A Mt. Pleasant police officer reported he'd had four hubcaps stolen from his unmarked police cruiser at his West Ashley home.

Arrested for public intoxication at 12:45 in the afternoon, a man told officers that he hadn't had anything to drink since lunch.

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.
