In the last nine months, the Charlotte City Council and Mayor Jennifer Roberts have been assailed in public – and on live television – by protesters of the Keith Lamont Scott shooting, immigration advocates and by those on both sides of the abortion debate.

Charlotte Uber driver Marlo Johnis Medina-Chevez went missing the night of May 20, 2017. Diontray Divan Adams, 24, and James Aaron Stevens, 20, were arrested in Maryland on May 23 in connection with the case. Adams has been charged with financial credit card fraud and outstanding Maryland warrants, and Stevens has been charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.
