The Blotter 

TENANT FROM HELL: A woman reported that one of her former tenants threatened her after she ordered him to move out of her property. A few days later she discovered that someone had driven nine nails into her car's tires, and poured syrup into the gas tank. The woman told police she is afraid of what he might do next because he has an "addiction problem."

SETTING A GOOD EXAMPLE: While sitting in a high school cafeteria, a young female student was approached by another student -- with whom she had had a previous argument -- and her mother. The young girl told police that the mother started screaming at her and threatened to "fuck her up if she continued to fuck with her daughter."

NOT A GOOD IDEA: A man was arrested after he assaulted two Charlotte police officers, striking one on the side of the face and scratching the other on the throat.

BURN BABY BURN: When police responded to a fire alarm at a local storage facility, they discovered what they called a "warming fire" in one of the storage units, which had also set off the sprinkler system. Officers determined that the responsible party was not trying to damage property or commit arson.

INCOMING: Two women became involved in an altercation when one woman told the other that she should turn herself back into the custody of DSS. This apparently incensed the deranged damsel, for as she was leaving she threw a brick through a window of the other woman's house.

MOVIE BONANZA: A video store owner called police and reported that a man grabbed approximately 25 DVDs from a display table and fled the store without paying. The ill-gotten flicks were valued at $500.

ONE HARD EGG: A man reported that while driving down the road, someone from inside a passing car threw an egg at his windshield, causing it to crack and an estimated $300 worth of damage.

HOLIDAY SHOPLIFTING: While monitoring surveillance cameras at a mall department store, a loss prevention officer spotted two women exit a dressing room carrying far less clothing than they entered with. The mall's public safety officers were alerted, and they stopped the two women outside the store, and discovered they had concealed nearly $600 worth of clothing. Both women were charged with larceny and banned from the store.
