What Kind Of DJ Is He?: While loading up DJ equipment into his vehicle, a 37-year-old northeast Charlotte man placed his .40 caliber Glock 23 handgun on the roof of his car. Probably not a big deal, until he drove off without retrieving it. It wasn't until he returned home that he realized it was lost and phoned police. Brings new meaning to "delivering all the hits," doesn't it?

Find A Penny, Pick It Up: An anonymous tipster phoned police to let them know she found a glasses case and 46 cents in change on the sidewalk while she was walking her dog in east Charlotte. What would Charlotte be without such vigilantes?

When One-Night Stands Go Wrong: Police were called to the home of a 22-year-old University-area woman for a possible breaking and entering in progress. A suspect was found inside the residence, where he told police he had spent one night at the location and had returned to retrieve his student identification. After the witness wouldn't let him in the house, he admitted to breaking into the home through a back window by forcibly removing the screen and lifting the window. So, um, dude, maybe she's just not that into you.

Was It Moe, Larry Or Curly?: A 34-year-old east Charlotte man phoned police after a family member poked him in the eye. No word if any other shenanigans — slapping, head bopping or calling out "whoop, whoop, whoop" ­— took place.

Dirt Track Date: Police responded to calls from the Dowd House after it was reported that someone drove a motorcycle on the lawn of the historic home. It appeared as if someone had created an oval track, a straight track and several loops on the grounds.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
