CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- New Year's Eve is a very busy night for folks in the Queen City and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were out in full force, making sure everyone had a safe night.  According to the CMPD, there were no major problems in uptown and in surrounding neighborhoods and arrests were down this year.
