Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files 

Sour Relationships: A 38-year-old woman said she got into an argument with a male friend while she was at work. She said her friend became upset and threatened her: "I know where you live, and I will fuck up your car and put a bullet in your head." To prove that he was serious, the man went to the parking lot and damaged the side of the woman's car.

A Warning to Nosy People: A 32-year-old man was trying to help out an acquaintance by offering him a little friendly advice. The acquaintance didn't take it well and called his home to say, "Stay out of my business! Where I come from people don't do this; they end up getting hurt." The man was alarmed by his acquaintance's comments, but it's not clear if the man has learned to mind his own business yet.

Angry Tenant: A 45-year-old landlord had to kick out a tenant and called the cops to assist. The tenant was pissed that he was being evicted and mad that his landlord called the cops. He threatened his landlord by saying, "You're really big when an officer is around. Wait until you don't have anyone around you."

Committed Prankster: A 53-year-old man said for the past four years someone has continually called him and hung up. He reported the person has called him at least 1,460 times on his home phone. He said the caller never says anything and hangs up as soon as he answers.

Why Not to Help Strangers: A 33-year-old woman was approached by a homeless man asking for change. When she pulled out her wallet to give him some spare change, he grabbed exposed money from her wallet and ran. The woman said he got away with $160.

Threat of the Week: A 24-year-old woman said her ex-boyfriend phoned and threatened her with bodily harm. The man said, "You think you will mess with another guy. You're pregnant with my baby. I will kill that [dude], and since you don't want to be with me or have an abortion, I will kill you. I will tie your body up and throw you in a six-foot-deep river." Damn.
