The Blotter 

Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police reports

Domestic Disinfectant: A married couple began arguing about the husband staying out all night. The wife called the husband a coward. He stepped on her foot. The two began spitting on each other -- and then the husband sprayed Lysol in the wife's hair. As if that wasn't enough, he also took her cell phone and threatened to pawn all the items in their home. As he tried to take her son's game system, she lunged at him. He backhanded her.

Sibling Ripping: Two brothers began arguing over a bracelet. One sibling ripped the sleeve off the other brother's jacket and struck him in the face.

Missing Movers: A woman told police she gave a moving business a $120 deposit to move her belongings to a new home. The movers were supposed to arrive on a Saturday. Two days passed and still no movers.

In the name of body odor: A drugstore reported someone walked in, picked up $32 worth of deodorant and walked out without paying.

A new side of the sleazy repairman: A person showed up at a woman's apartment to repair her Saturn SL1. He took the car to fix the transmission. Neither car nor would-be repairman has been seen since.

How to be compassionate: Two siblings began arguing over who is the most giving and compassionate -- specifically, who takes more care of their mother -- when the brother began choking the sister to prove his point. The 19-year-old woman says she wanted to take a warrant out against her brother.

A note of not-so-explosive value: The assistant principal at a Charlotte-Mecklenburg high school reported she found a note with a date on it and the word "bomb" written on it. As of press time, the school is still standing.

BRAINIAC OF THE WEEK: A man rented an Xbox 360 from an electronic and furniture rental store one day and tried to pawn it the next.

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