Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files 

Kids Gone Wild: A 30-year-old employee at a youth group home said a male resident was out of control and started to wreak havoc. When she tried to restrain him, he ripped off her shirt. When the employee tried to restrain him again, the resident's friend kicked the employee in the chest.

Not-So-Brotherly Love: A 36-year-old man said his brother called him and their mother one evening and, for no apparent reason, threatened to bullet into both their heads. The man believes his brother will try to carry out the threat because he's crazy and has always been crazy.

Seriously Disgruntled Customer: A 56-year-old man said a former customer called his place of business and threatened to shoot everyone who worked there. The man made the threat because he was not satisfied with the level of service he received.

Extreme Behavior: A juvenile was arrested for possession of marijuana, resisting an officer and communicating threats. Several officers arrived on the scene, but that did not deter the juvenile. The juvenile gave officers fictitious names and birthdates, and threatened to kill several of the officers with his gun.

Family Matters: An 18-year-old woman said she and her brother got into an argument and he beat her up. The argument erupted over who was going to sleep in which room.

Feuding Neighbors: A 25-year-old woman complained about her neighbor's loud music several times to her landlord because she could hear it in her apartment. One evening she saw her neighbors outside and heard one of them say, "If she complains about the music ... bang, bang." She felt the comment was a threat.

Threat of the Week: A 41-year-old man borrowed an unspecified amount of money from his friend but failed to repay him. The friend was angry the man didn't return his money and threatened to burn down the man's house and slit his throat.

  • 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)
