Bizarre crimes From Charlotte police files 

Caddy Sack: Police were called to Sunset Hills Golf Course last week after an employee arrived early one morning to find that someone had plundered the property, stealing all of the ropes, flags and cups from the driving range and chipping greens. The guy must have lost one too many balls in the water and had enough. We can relate.

Do the Finger Biter: A pair of 33-year-old women filed a police report two days after they were involved in a fight last week at a nightclub. The first victim was hanging out at BAR Charlotte around midnight when someone punched her in the back. When her friend attempted to break it up, the suspect bit her on the finger and pulled her hair. The attacker then blended into the crowd and got away because everyone in the bar, thinking the woman was doing a new dance, began biting fingers and throwing punches.

Butterfingers: A 15-year-old boy filed a police report after a fellow basketball player assaulted him during a game. The victim told officers he threw a pass to the suspect and it slipped through his hands, hitting him in the face. Enraged, the suspect later approached the victim and slapped him in the face. Let's get this right: Not only does this suspect suck at basketball, but he goes around slapping other boys due to his sucking at basketball.

Vote For Me, dammit: A 51-year-old woman called police after her daughter's car was vandalized recently. The woman told officers that unknown suspects covered the car with campaign signs while the family was sleeping. Is Scott Stone really this desperate?

Everything goes!: A 42-year-old woman filed a police report after someone broke into her home last week and stole a large TV, a small TV, a stereo, a CD player, an entertainment center, a kitchen table, some chairs, a trash can, a vase, a mattress, miscellaneous shoes and clothing, and a vacuum cleaner. What, they forgot to take the house?

Threat of the Week: A woman told police last week that she was threatened in front of the McDonald's where she works. The victim was arguing with the suspect when he told her, "I am going to come back and blow this whole fucking place up." Just remember: If one McDonald's stops operations for even one day, the terrorists win.

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)
