  • Wednesday, October 9, 2013

An argument between a 43-year-old Pawleys Island man and his 41-year-old wife turned violent Sept. 28.
The man told deputies he and his wife were at a wedding reception in DeBordieu when he saw his wife “grinding up on another guy while dancing.”
The man said he got upset and told his wife they were leaving.
In her statement, the woman admitted she was dancing “seductively” with another man. She said her husband grabbed her by the arm and “escorted her” out of the building.
The man said he did not hit his wife but she claims he hit her on the arm several times. She said she hit him with her keys in order to free herself.
The man had a little blood on his face when deputies arrived.
The man, who has no criminal history, was arrested for criminal domestic violence and was released on bond the same day.

Trucker accused of trying to run down man and dog

A man from Wolf Drive said he was walking his dog near Garrison Road at about 8:45 a.m. Sept. 30 when a 42-year-old man tried to run over him with his Mack truck.
The victim said when he heard the truck coming up behind him, he moved to the far left side of the road so the truck could pass.
The driver reportedly swerved in the left lane in an attempt to hit the victim, according to the victim. He said he and his dog had to jump a ditch to avoid being hit.
The trucker reportedly got out of the truck and started cussing at the victim.
The man said the truck driver then got back in the truck and started driving away, so he and his dog began walking in the opposite direction.
The victim said the driver then backed the truck up and tried to run over him again.
The driver and victim have “had issues over several years,” the report states.
The driver said as he was passing by, the victim made a gesture at him and started jumping up and down in the road.
He denied trying to run over the man. He said the alleged victim is a “drug head.”
No charges were filed but the victim was told he could see a magistrate about the matter.

Sampit burglary

A woman from the 200 block of Royal Pines Drive said she returned home Sept. 30 and saw her back door had been kicked in.
Taken from the house was a video game system, a laptop and a Nook.
The woman said the thieves secured her dog in the kitchen while they were in her home.
There are currently no suspects.

Sentimental ring lost

A Murrells Inlet man reported losing a valuable ring.
The 42-year-old man said he let his sister-in-law borrow his car and then she let her boyfriend use the vehicle.
The victim said there was a ring on his keychain. It was his father's wedding band that his mother gave him when his father died.
The ring was missing when the key chain was returned.
The deputy called a pawn shop in Surfside Beach but the worker “was not very helpful,” the report states.
The victim was told by the deputy since he knew his sister-in-law's boyfriend was going to use the car, no theft occurred.

Thousands taken from vehicle

A man from Murrells Inlet met with a deputy Sept. 26 to report money theft.

The man said the vehicle was parked at his job site in the 500 block of Hammock Ave. when the theft took place.
The man said he was told by a co-worker that he overheard another worker saying he had taken the cash out of the victim’s vehicle.
The investigation into the theft continues.
