We like to poke fun at Carroll "Tumpy" Campbell III. For one, he's got one helluva dumb nickname. And he repeatedly has claimed that he is not a lobbyist when he owns a Columbia-based lobbying firm. Oy vey. But we never expected to see Tump Tump's name in a police report. And we sure as hell never expected to see Live 5 WCSC reporter Tracey Amick's in it, too. But there they were. See, unbeknownst to those who are supposed to be in the know, the one-time super-couple had split. And boy oh boy, was it ever an ugly breakup. Amick accused Tumpy of harassing her via e-mail and telephone calls and Campbell accused Tracey of stealing, well, a whole lot of things, from a sofa to an end table to a 47-inch TV.
