Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files (July 12 edition) 

Assault with a rack of ribs, a crafty creeper, more

Twisted Sisters: Police responded to a domestic disturbance after two women — sisters — went at each other while apparently cooking dinner. Of course both claimed to be victims in the fight. The younger sibling told officers that her older sister had threatened her with a knife. The older sister told police that she only grabbed the knife after she was hit in the face with a rack of ribs. Here's hoping the officer banished both to their respective rooms — sans dinner.

No-love Gun: A 62-year-old woman filed a police report after a man allegedly pointed a gun at her when she approached him in his car and told him to turn his music down. When did this Kiss Army roll into town?

Biofuel Bastards: Police responded to a robbery call at the Chicken King restaurant on The Plaza last week, but the store wasn't robbed from the inside. Someone stole an entire "green waste oil" container filled with grease from behind the restaurant. The manager told officers the theft could've happened anytime in late June and that it would cost his company $500.

Crafty Creeper: A 28-year-old woman called police after dealing with a scissor-crazy jerk. She told officers that the suspect cut up pieces of her clothing and the sheets on her bed when he was hanging out at her house. Later on, he sent her a text message saying that he would rape and kill her and her roommate.

Cop Fail: In one report from last week that described a woman stabbing her boyfriend in the arm while at a barber shop, the officer wrote, rather strangely, that the couple was "in a boyfriend and girlfriend relationship." In an unrelated report regarding shoplifting, an officer listed stolen items as, "dypers, paper towels and laundry ditergen."

Tenant Tantrum: An employee at Pine Tree apartment complex filed a police report after some tenants left behind quite a mess when they moved. The report states that after violating their lease, the tenants were kicked out of the apartment. Before leaving, they removed carpet and urinated on the floor, leaving behind trash, old food and soiled clothes. They also wrote on all of the walls.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
