Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files (March 27) 

Yes, frozen meat can be a weapon

Show Yourself: Police responded to a municipal building after someone reported that about eight people were fighting outside it. When they arrived, officers witnessed a man punch a woman in the face and stomach. When they started to arrest him, he showed his penis to officers and the female victim and cussed at the cops.

Hanging Out: A father of an elementary student at a CMS school called police, saying one of his son's after-school instructors treated the kid like a piece of art made in class. The father told police that the instructor picked his 7-year-old son up by the shirt collar and "placed him on the wall."

Invincible: A 32-year-old man went into beast mode and came out unscathed during an argument in which a family member threw everything he had at him. The two men were arguing outside of an apartment complex in northwest Charlotte when the suspect allegedly threw frozen meat at the victim. Despite reportedly being struck on the left arm, the victim did not sustain an injury. Shortly after, the man contends the suspect threw liquid detergent in his face, but he prevailed long enough to call police.

Food Fight: A 27-year-old man went out to his driveway one morning to find that someone had thrown a jar of salsa through the back window of his Taurus overnight, not only shattering the window but the jar as well.

A Place to Crash: An employee at Scott Jaguar dealership came to work last week and found a man who really needed some rest. The man had kicked in an entire glass window of the dealership to gain access to the premises and passed out on the floor.

For the Gods: Police responded to an assault call in the University area last week after a woman reported being hit by a man who was visiting her house. After further questioning from police, the woman admitted that the man had not touched her but she wanted him out of her house anyway because he kept talking about making a blood sacrifice.

could be worse: A 43-year-old woman filed a police report last week after a man continuously drove by her house and sometimes left presents for her on the front porch. She was lucky. In an unrelated incident, a 51-year-old woman filed a report on the same day because a man came to her house on three separate occasions and left notes threatening her life on her porch.

Cane Oil: Police responded to a domestic disturbance call after a woman and her son got into a physical fight using weapons, Mortal Kombat-style. Both parties admitted to throwing oil on each other and hitting each other with a walking cane used by another family member.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.

  • 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)
