A 35-year-old Georgetown man is accused of forcing his way inside a mobile home on Green Acres Drive at about 3 a.m. Saturday. He allegedly locked himself inside.
The owner of the home was outside when deputies arrived.
Deputies made entry into the home and the man walked from a back bedroom with his hands in the air yelling that someone was going to kill him.
After the man was detained he continued to say three people with shotguns had chased him. That, he said, is why he forced his way into the home and locked himself inside.
The man had several cuts on his feet and appeared to be under the influence of drugs, the report states. He said he had been drinking for three days and thought he saw a female friend put poison in one of his drinks.
The homeowner said he was in bed when the suspect started banging on the door demanding to be let inside. He said the man busted in the door and, once inside, ran to the bedroom and locked that door. As the victim was fleeing, he heard the suspect break his bedroom window.
The suspect was taken to the hospital for evaluation and was then taken to jail, charged with trespassing and malicious injury to property.
Drunk man punched in face
Deputies were sent to the waffle House in Pawleys Island Nov. 29 because of an assault. The officers met the victim - a 32-year-old Pawleys Island man - who was bleeding from his mouth. He also had blood on his hands and jacket.
The man was intoxicated and admitted he had spent more than $100 that evening on Crown Royal.
The man said he was forced out of the club where he had been drinking by the bartender who “stuck his goons on him,” the report states.
He said he was walking away from the bar when he was struck in the face by a “large” man. The man was asked to fill out a victim’s form, which he did. After completing the form, he licked his bloody thumb and placed a thumbprint on the form next to where he signed his name.
The man first refused medical treatment but later said he needed an ambulance.
The area was searched but the alleged suspect was not located.
Problem patient arrested
A deputy was sent to Waccamnaw Community Hospital Dec. 3 after a 25-year-old female - described in the report as a psychiatric patent - left the hospital without permission.
A security guard said she found the woman outside and took her back into the emergency room.
A nurse said the patient was causing problems by yelling, cursing and not following rules.
The woman reportedly said she would rather be in jail than at the hospital where she had been committed. Because of the way she was acting, she was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Employee theft at the vet
The owner of Coastal Animal Veterinary Clinic in Murrells Inlet reported a former employee allegedly stole money from the business.
He said once he noticed money missing, he began a records check and saw several accounts had been paid by cash. He said the worker would create an account, print a paid invoice receipt for the client and later delete the account from the computer system and take the money.
The only days when accounts were deleted were days the suspect worked.
As of the time the report was taken, $380 was known to be missing but that figure was expected to grow because other accounts had been deleted.
The case is still being investigated.
Mushroom tripper arrested
A 23-year-old Murrells Inlet man was arrested Dec. 3 on drug charges. Horry County police had the man stopped at Food Lion In Murrells Inlet.
The Horry officer told Georgetown County authorities he was driving on Highway 707 when the suspect jumped in front of his patrol car.
The man was patted down and a small bag of marijuana was found in his pocket.
When asked why he jumped in the road, the suspect reportedly said he was “tripping on mushrooms.”
The man was taken to jail.
