Welcome to the Blotter Diva's world 

It's crazy how many people just loooove seeing their friends in the Blotter.

"Remember the one about the girl whose cat ejaculated on the neighbor?" goes a typical question. "That's my friend!"

Is his friend the girl? The neighbor? The ejaculating cat? Often, I don't want to know. But the excitement is palpable when someone learns I write the Blotter, CL's weekly wrap-up of hotheaded hooligans, lusty lunatics and oddballs gone berserk, as gleaned from scouring countless police reports.

Whether the people referenced in the Blotter are guilty of anything will be for a judge or jury to determine at some later date (sometimes much later). My goal is simply to condense the on-the-scene observations of our boys in blue - with the attitude, misspellings and stilted cop-speak left intact.

That said, here are the top Blotters from the past year's parade of drug-addled street people, extraordinarily dumb criminals and guys who drop trou in public. This is Atlanta, folks. Enjoy.
