Let Me Smash That: A man's night on the town ended early last week after a woman decided throwing the contents of her drink in his face wasn't quite enough. The man was injured to the point of hospitalization when the woman threw the entire glass directly at his face. The woman admitted to throwing the glass, alleging the man had drunkenly harassed her and made "aggressive advancements" outside of Howl at the Moon.
Intoxicating incidents: ABC detectives were all over east Charlotte last week, busting businesses for selling to undercover, underage volunteers and breaking other laws. In an unrelated incident, cops got an eyeful from a potential customer at a gas station on Milton Road. Detectives watched the man stumble up to the side of the store and start urinating on the wall. The man was cooperative, and detectives kept it professional, including in the report that "the defendant advised he just had to go."
Change of Heart: Police searched a man's house near Freedom Drive after receiving a tip that he may be involved in human trafficking. Police did not find any evidence of trafficking but did find four blunts and a .380 pistol hidden under the mattress of the man's bed. When confronted, the man said he knew about the gun but had recently decided he didn't want it around him anymore. The police took the gun and ordered it destroyed.
Cease fire: A 21-year-old east Charlotte man probably wants police to destroy his own gun after he discovered his piece was more a threat to himself than a tool of defense. The man told officers that an unknown man brandished a handgun during a drug deal and tried to rob him. The victim tried to pull out his gun to fight back but ended up shooting himself in the process. The report doesn't specify where he shot himself. He suffered a serious injury, was treated and released.
Walking Dead: A startled 30-year-old woman called police after nearly falling victim to what appeared to be a zombie attack in southwest Charlotte. The woman told police she was sitting at an intersection on Arrowood Road when she saw a man walking down the street bleeding from the head. As he passed her car, he suddenly fell onto the vehicle, rolled off and fell in the street. The man was highly intoxicated to the point where he could not speak, and police could not find out why he was bleeding.
