Two men fought on the ground of a King Street convenience store as 15 customers stood around watching them.

A woman told officers that a neighbor from across the street routinely knocks on her door and asks for a cigarette with his penis exposed. The woman told officers that every time, "she immediately tells the subject to put his penis back in his pants and go home. The subject always complies and leaves the premises of her property, sometimes with his penis still hanging out of his pants." The man did the same thing to the woman's adult son, but she was only encouraged to report his behavior after it happened to another neighbor.
A West Ashley hotel guest called the cops claiming that her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend was in the parking lot trying to run him over. The hotel manager later confirmed that the man had actually jumped on his ex's car and punched the windshield, covering his ex in shards of glass.
