A man who wanted to be one of the first to get his hands on the Hunger Games movie when it was released at midnight Aug. 18 was not at all happy when it was not available.
The man — whose identity is unknown — stopped at the Pawleys Island Walgreens to get a copy of the movie but the store had not received a shipment as expected.
The man got upset and was causing a scene inside the store. He told the manager he would hit him if he walked outside.
The manager was near the door when the man clenched his fist and swung at the victim. The manager was able to dodge the hit and the movie-wanting suspect left in a vehicle.
A 20-year-old Georgetown woman and her 22-year-old boyfriend were at a home on Empire Court Sunday afternoon when they got into an argument.
She said he pushed her down, causing her to fall into an oxygen tank.
The woman decided she would stay with a friend that night to get away from the suspect but later that evening he showed up at that residence.
He told the victim if she did not walk outside he would burn her clothing and slash both of their throats.
The man told deputies he and his girlfriend had been arguing all day about his Facebook page but their had been no threats or physical violence.
Because there were no visible signs of injury on the woman, the man was not arrested at the time but the woman was told to see a magistrate if she wanted to press charges.
A deputy responded to the 300 block of River Oaks Circle in Pawleys Island where he saw two vehicles that had writings and drawings painted on them.
One of the vehicles, a black Volvo, had male genitalia painted on two windows and the word “whory” and a name painted on another.
The other vehicle, a Jeep Cherokee, had a racial slur and “KKK” painted on it. It also had a drawing of male genitalia painted on it.
Fortunately, the drawings were made with window safe paint.
The owner said she believes two men that are friends with her son may be responsible.
An unemployed man from Player Street who collects cans reported a bucketfull of the cans was stolen from his yard Aug. 20.
He said a neighbor told him he saw a 53-year-old Georgetown man taking the cans. The victim confronted the man who admitted the theft but the complainant said he does not want to press charges.
Hit with girlfriend’s car
A 22-year-old man from Macklen Ave. in Murrells Inlet said his 19-year-old girlfriend intentionally hit him with her vehicle causing him to fall to the ground Aug. 20.
He said he was not injured but “his knees were dirty from the ground,” the report states.
The man said he did not think his girlfriend was trying to kill him, she just wanted him out of the way.
The woman was arrested for criminal domestic violence.
A man from Armstrong Drive in Choppee told deputies he saw a 30-year-old man looking into a back window of his home Aug. 18.
He said he thinks the man was spying on him and his family because he is the biological father of some children who live at the location.
The alleged spy took off running when he realized he had been spotted.
The complainant said he wants the man placed on trespass notice.
