EAST COOPER POLICE BLOTTER
Evening ends badly over dance argument
A 30-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman's night on the town came to an end when the man called police just before 1 a.m. April 24 and asked her to leave, a report states.
The man and woman had been drinking at several bars and had starting arguing during the ride to his home because the man had danced with another woman. They were still fighting in his driveway when the man called Mount Pleasant police and asked his girlfriend to leave.
Police talked to both people and it was determined that they should separate for the rest of the evening. The woman took a cab to her own home and the man stayed at his home. There was nothing further.
Police leave ticket for man with loud music
A man refused to turn down his loud music after Mount Pleasant police asked him to, so he was given a ticket for disobeying the noise ordinance, a report states.
Police knocked on the man's door about 3 p.m. April 24. Police said they could hear the bass coming from all areas around the home.
The man inside the home spoke to the officer through an intercom system because health problems made it difficult for him to come to the door, according to the report. The man said that the only reason the noise was loud was because the police hadn't arrested the people who stole his money and hadn't finished his home renovations.
The officer asked him to turn down the bass a little and the man went on a profanity-laden tirade and told the officer to get off his property. The officer said he would come back with a ticket if the man didn't turn his music down and explained the noise ordinance. The man cut off communication and turned the music up.
The officer went back to his car, wrote the man a ticket and came back to the intercom, but the man wouldn't respond. The officer put the ticket through a cat door and the man again told the police to leave his property over the intercom.
The officer told the man he had given him a ticket and his court date and said he could mail in the fine. The man told the officer to put the ticket in his mail box next time or he would sue. The police left.
Man charged with public intoxication
A 58-year-old Goose Creek man hanging out by a trash bin who also appeared to be severely intoxicated told Mount Pleasant police that he had just returned from a trip to the beach and was cleaning out his vehicle, a report states.
When police arrived about 2 p.m. April 24, he was throwing items including a 32-ounce purple beer can from his vehicle into the trash bin. Police wrote that the man smelled heavily of alcohol, was uneasy on his feet and was slurring his words.
The officer identified himself and asked the man what he was doing. The man said he had just come from the beach and was cleaning out his car, and when asked, he told police he had "a lot" to drink. Police then arrested him on a charge of public intoxication.
Teen boys wearing black spandex tracked
Two teens wearing black from head to toe drew suspicion at a local pharmacy about 3 p.m. April 20 and police were called, a report states.
On the way to the pharmacy, Mount Pleasant police were told by dispatchers that the boys had left the pharmacy and were walking around the mall parking lot. Dispatchers said the boys were wearing black suits that covered them from head to toe.
Police looked for the boys but couldn't find them, so they went to the pharmacy that had reported the teens. A woman working there was visibly nervous and told police what the boys looked like, the report says.
Another officer had found the boys walking near another pharmacy. The teenagers said they bought the spandex black suits from an online website and that they were walking around just looking for attention. They said their parents had dropped them off.
Police told the teenagers about the impression they had made and called their parents to pick them up.
Woman reports call about hiding 'a body'
A woman working in an office reported a crank call about 2 p.m. April 21 in which a young man called and yelled "hide the body, you have to hide the body," a report states.
The woman told a Mount Pleasant police officer that she asked the caller who he was and he said, "you have to get rid of the body, you have to get out of the country."
The woman asked the boy if he needed help and he hung up.
The woman said that the boy sounded very upset and that she couldn't recognize his voice. The caller ID didn't display the caller's number. There was nothing else to report.
These news items were taken from incident reports from the Mount Pleasant Police Department.
