The Blotter 

CLEAN GETAWAY: A man was washing his truck recently when another man walked up to him. The stranger told him his truck looked good, and then explained to the truck washer that he had a gun and would kill him unless he gave over the truck. The truck's owner took a step back, handed over the keys, and the man drove off.

WHATEVER WORKS: A man called police to report four harassing phone calls. According to the man, the first two consisted of yelling, cursing, and screaming. During the third call he reported that the caller said, "I'm going to burn down your house." He told police the man called back minutes later and said that, on second thought, "I'll just come and shoot you."

She told them he also fled the scene. After the police arrived at her house shortly thereafter, the boyfriend came back to the house and was arrested.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: My name is Payne and I'm going to cause you a whole lot of pain.

WHEN CAN YOU START?: After a woman went to a job interview, she called police afterward to report that during the interview the man interviewing her grabbed her hips and sat her down in his lap.
