Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police reports



BROS BEFORE HOES: A 37-year-old woman said she got in an argument with her husband over his brother while she was driving her car on Idlewild Road. The argument became very heated, and he started hitting her in the face and upside the head. The woman said she ducked down to avoid his blows, but he pulled her head up by the back of her hair and continued hitting her. At some point, her car door flung open and she fell out onto the roadway.

PANTY RAID: A 32-year-old woman was at a bar in East Charlotte when someone broke into her car by smashing the back window. She said only two items were stolen: a pair of designer sunglasses that cost $200 and a pair of her panties.

THE POLICE HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO: A 50-year-old woman reported that her passport has been missing for the past two years. She said it was lost somewhere in her home on Catalina Avenue.

MYSTERIOUS INJURY: A 17-year-old woman said she and her friend were on their way home from Midnite Rodeo nightclub on Albemarle Road. She said they stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Albemarle Road and Harrisburg Road when something struck her nose. Her friend drove her to Carolinas Medical Center in the University area and the emergency room nurse on duty said her nose was broken. The woman said she doesn't know what hit her nose, causing it to break.

FITS OF JEALOUSY: A 47-year-old woman said she caught a city bus to get downtown. She said as she was exiting the bus, she stopped to talk to the bus driver. Another woman on the bus approached her and starting yelling at her for talking to the bus driver because she wanted to become romantically involved with him (even though he had repeatedly turned down her advances). She became angry with the 47-year-old woman and shoved her, punched her in the shoulder and slapped her in the face before jumping off the bus and running away. The police report noted that the two women are actually friends. It also noted that they have never been involved in a romantic relationship.
