The Blotter 

Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files

A BLOODY MESS: A bouncer said a man was acting rowdy and was asked to leave. The man refused to leave and attempted to punch the bouncer. In self-defense, the bouncer hit the man in the face causing the man's nose to bleed. The man then took his blood and smeared it all over the bouncer's face before fleeing.

RAGING EX: A 26-year-old man said his ex-girlfriend came to his house to talk about their relationship. She didn't like what he said, so she spit in his face and slapped him several times. While the man was calling the police, she fled.

CASE OF THE OBSESSIVE EX: A 22-year-old woman said her ex-boyfriend has made more than 1,000 harassing calls to her home, even though she has repeatedly asked him to stop calling. She said he is upset because she doesn't want any contact with him anymore.

WITH A FRIEND LIKE THIS, WHO NEEDS ENEMIES: An 18-year-old woman said she got into an argument with one of her friends, who then tried to run her over with a car. The woman said her friend also hit her in the face with a stick and threatened to kill her before fleeing.

EXTREMELY DISGRUNTLED CUSTOMER: An owner of a car dealership on Wilkinson Boulevard reported a distinctly unsatisifed customer. He said the man claimed, "I am going to shoot the glass out of the building and your cars and you won't have a car lot."

CRAZY CUTTER: A 26-year-old woman said she and a co-worker were arguing in a break room when the co-worker pulled a kitchen knife from a drawer and threatened to cut her with it.

THREAT OF THE WEEK: A woman said a former friend has called and text messaged her at least 130 times, harassing her. Her annoyance turned to fright when her ex-friend called yet again and said, "I'm coming down now to take care of business. Do you clowns prefer the AK-47 or the 12 gauge?" and "I'm going to make sure you never see your kids again."

  • 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)
