Police Blotter - Employee does not agree with NO cell phone policy

  • Updated

You're fired

A manager at a local fast food restaurant had to call police on an employee she just fired. She explained to officers that the employee became annoyed with her and started cussing and screaming at her. In an effort to do the right thing she called the owner who told her to fire him. So she did but he refused to leave the restaurant.

When police arrived they began questioning him and asked for his name. At first he gave the wrong name then he gave the wrong spelling of the real name. When he finally gave them the right name and officers ran his information through the database, it came back that this person had a warrant out from the Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services. He admitted to being aware of the warrant due to him not reporting three months in a row. He was transported to Charleston County Detention Center.

Hang up

Most places of employment prohibit cell phone use while on the job. The same is true for a local house cleaning company. But recently one employee didn't want to follow that rule and she got called out.

In this case the boss told the employee to hang up the phone and that she could not clean and talk on the phone at the same time, especially when she is on the clock. But the employee began to yell and scream at her and then came down the stairs and shoved her. The two other employees in the house pulled her away from their boss.

The boss, for whatever reason, said she did not want to press charges and the other two employees stated they didn’t want to get involved and didn’t wish to speak to officers. The case was closed.

Tossed it

It's not often that officers on patrol come across a man plopped down on the curb puffing on a joint. But sure enough a man was seen smoking away as an officer drove by. When the officer stopped to chat with him he could clearly smell the aroma of weed. He asked the suspect about it and the man actually said, "people on the other side of the fence may be smoking weed." The cop told him to be honest and that's when the suspect admitted that it had been him and that he tossed it as soon as he saw the cop.

The suspect was searched and no other contraband was located. The joint was located just a short distance away and the suspect was given a ticket for possession.

Out of control

When a man could not gain entry into the house of his children's mother, he whipped out his lighter and started burning the screen on the window and the window latch. But that wasn't going to work so he jumped on the hood of her car and started urinating on the windshield.

He was found walking away from the scene but was detained and charged and arrested for disorderly conduct.
