The Blotter 

Who throws bricks?: In an uptown Charlotte home, a man picked up a brick and threw it at a person. The person ducked and the brick hit a man standing behind the ducker square in the face. He suffered a broken nose.

Dog-napper: A suspected road-rage incident turned psycho when a man decided to follow a woman home. When she pulled into her driveway, the man got of his car and threatened her. Then he noticed her pit bull, grabbed it and drove off. The dog is valued at $500. But can you really put a price tag on a best friend?

Potential dog-napper: On Sunday afternoon a man sped down the street where he lived. He noticed a person on the road gesturing angrily at him. The driver stopped to see what the person had to say. "Get back in your @#*&!#% car or I'm going to kick your @#*&!#% @#!." The driver obliged and was on his merry way when the man added, "I know you have three dogs. If anything happens to them don't look at me." CL thinks the man actually would be the most likely person to look at.

Beat the ref: A Gastonia parent at his child's basketball game ticked off the referee and was ejected from the contest. According to the police report, the parent became irate, charged the court, tackled the referee and began hitting him. It took several men to pull him off the referee. The ref complained of back pain. The man's embarrassed kid probably will not leave the house for a year.

Hit and run: While backing out of a parking spot at a local inn, a man rammed his car into another vehicle. The negligent driver offered the guy he hit $100 on the spot for the damage, which was later valued at $1,500. The victim said he was going to call the police, but the negligent driver abandoned his car and fled into the motel. He hid in an unknown room.

Threat of the week: The following threat was delivered via air mail to a woman: "I'm going to put you in a pine box." We're not sure, but this letter must have been a time capsule from the 1800s.

Stinky house: A woman walked into an Eckerds, put $56.32 worth of Glade PlugIns into her purse and left the store without paying.

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