‘Chilling’ in boy’s room
A 16-year-old female, who was “incoherent” and “under the influence was found in the boy’s restroom at the Georgetown High School Career Center June 4.
When a police officer confronted the “disoriented” teen and asked why she was in the boy’s room, the teen said she was “just chilling.” She was asked to get her stuff and get out of that room.
The assistant principal told the officer he believes the teen was smoking in the bathroom because of the “distinct odor” coming from the room.
The administrator told the girl to empty her pockets and she responded “don’t you need a warrant?”
She was asked again to empty her pockets and again she refused. She was escorted to the office where she became “belligerent and irate,” the report states. She repeatedly used profanity towards the officer, so she was arrested.
In her possession, police found a pack containing a “green leafy substance” and a half-smoked blunt.
She is expected to appear in court in July.
Shots fired in Bayview?
Police were called to the 300 block of Bayview Drive at about 9 a.m. Tuesday where a woman said she heard two possible gunshots near her building.
She said when she walked outside she saw two men arguing in the grassy area near the building. When they saw her they fled on foot towards the Cravens Grant development.
The two were questioned by police and denied firing a gun and said they did not hear any gunfire.
They were not charged with the gunfire call, however one of the men had an outstanding county warrant for assault and battery, so he was arrested.
Unruly barefoot man
A man who walked into the Murrells Inlet Waffle House barefoot at about 2:30 a.m. June 5 is accused of causing problems.
The man, believed to be around 25 years old, was asked by a manager to put on shoes. A woman he was with handed him the flip flops she was wearing. The manager told her she could not do that because she needed shoes also.
The man then started cussing at the manager before he walked outside, picked up the cigarette butt can and threw it across the parking lot casing it to break in in three places.
The manager did not want to press charges but wanted a report on file in case the man returns to the restaurant.

Disorderly at hospital
