HOW BOUT SUNNY SIDE UP: Crime was relatively low last weekend except for some high school drama and a few fights at the infamous pancake diner IHOP. I don’t know what it is about a hot platter of hash browns and a gravy biscuit that makes people want to fight, but there were two accounts of fights taken out to the parking lot. In Friday’s 6 p.m. beat down, one man ran before the police arrived and now there is a warrant for his arrest. Sunday’s 5 a.m. scrabble was just for kicks; neither person wanted to press charges.
MEAN GIRLS: In the Hades of high school saga and female drama, fights are just about as wild and vicious as depicted in Lindsay Lohan’s movie. Two “juvenile females” were fighting on the school bus on the way home Friday. But, it’s hard to believe that anything they were fighting could have been that juvenile considering they had to break it up at the police station. And another pair of girls broke it out after a basketball game at Beaufort High. That’s not all, ladies, one woman was charged for threats of intimidation and harassing phone calls for calling up her former friend and threatening her. Drama — it’s a cat-eat-cat world out there.
WRONG SIDE OF THE BED: A “male juvenile” woke up a little grumpy on Friday, using profanity toward another student on a school bus. When the bus driver tried to shut him up, he began to curse at her. The bus driver wasn’t having it from the bad-mouthed boy and called the School Resource Officer (SRO). He continued to use profanity and make threats to the SRO and was then detained at the police station. I bet he’s fun to wake up for school.
GRINCH STRIKES THE FESTIVAL OF TREES: Many gathered on Sunday to decorate evergreens for The Festival of Trees at the Charles Lind Brown Neighborhood Activity Center (formerly the Greene Street Gym) located at 1001 Hamar St. It was an event full of Christmas cheer, tinsel, ornament and teamwork. The Grinch made his strike earlier that morning around 2 a.m. with the night as his disguise. He vandalized the side of the building with the word “kill” and the number “13.”
