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.
March 10 must have been a helluva night for city cops. On that date:
Cops arrested a man after a local homeowner spotted him walking around in her yard, destroying potted plants and lawn chairs. An officer approached the 42-year-old man and asked for I.D., but the fellow couldn't balance or grab his wallet. He hobbled toward the officer saying, "You want to fucking kill me." The cop searched the man, and found a small silver container with marijuana in it. Who does this guy think he is, Robert Downey Jr.?
Cops found two men lying face-down on a concrete median near the intersection of Market and East Bay streets. Apparently, an argument over a female led one of the men to punch the other in the stomach after he said, "Fuck you, leave me alone!" A fight broke out, but the victim could not provide details about how they both ended up in the street.
