Police: Drunk man blamed for falling glass from uptown building


Police in Charlotte say a drunk man is responsible for glass shards falling from a high rise building in uptown Charlotte Sunday night.

According to police, the incident happened around 8:32 p.m. Sunday night at the One Wells Fargo building on College Street.

Witnesses say they heard a loud noise, then saw glass falling the building.

Police soon arrived to block off an area around the courtyard and sidewalk between the skyscraper and the Hilton hotel.

In a report from the responding officer, police say a highly intoxicated male somehow managed to throw some type of object through the window on the 39th floor. 

That broke the window and sent glass flying 39 stories down.

Several of the witnesses were attending a bloggers convention at the Hilton. Reports of what happened immediately went up on Twitter.

There were no injuries, an arrest has not yet been made.
