The Blotter 

Unfit Father To Be: A pregnant woman confronted her live-in boyfriend after he stayed out all night, and told him he had to leave. The confrontation escalated, and the philandering boyfriend grabbed the woman by the neck, pushed her in the abdomen, and knocked her to the floor. Could I get an ass whipping for one, please?

Camp Scratch Fever: A woman driving a van full of kids to a local day camp had to pull over on the side of the interstate after one of the little angels started causing a ruckus in the back of the van. When the distraught driver attempted to restrain the rowdy camper, the troublesome tyke scratched both her arms, causing minor injuries. So, naturally, she called the police.

Spitting Mad: After being warned not to return until he attended a meeting with his manager, an irate worker showed up at the job site looking for trouble. The worked-up worker began screaming at his boss, and proceeded to spit in his face. When the spittle-covered supervisor tried to walk away, the anger management candidate grabbed his now ex-boss from behind and threw him to the ground.

Drive-By Fruiting: A convenience store owner called police after an unknown suspect busted a fluorescent bulb located on the store's front door by throwing a juice bottle at it.

Flaky Father: What started as a pleasant phone conversation in which a woman was thanking the father of her kids for sending her a money order took an unexpected turn. For no apparent reason the dad suddenly started raging at the mother of his children, and threatened "to tear down her door and cut her into little pieces."

It's A Sin: As if thievery wasn't bad enough, some joker broke into a church's utility shed and stole a tractor lawnmower. How many Hail Marys is that?

Eggheads: It appears a couple of juvenile delinquents are gleefully continuing an age-old trickster tradition. In two separate incidents in the same neighborhood, drivers reported having eggs thrown at their cars by a couple of little scoundrels hiding behind bushes. Both drivers said the eggs caused minor damage to their cars.

Home? What's That?: After reporting a juvenile family member missing, a female relative finally located the errant young woman at a nearby apartment complex. When the concerned relative tried to bring the child back home, the runaway responded by slamming the door on her arm.

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