A man from Wildflower Trail called 911 Aug. 13 to report finding a gun.
The man said he found the firearm in front of Waccamaw Elementary School “right in the middle of the road,” the report states.
The 9mm handgun was in a brown and black bag.
There was a magazine inside the gun and it contained ten 9mm rounds.
It was placed into evidence for safekeeping.
A 19-year-old Pawleys Island man is accused of voyeurism after allegedly spying on a 16-year-old girl.
The mother of the teen said her daughter was at a friend’s house on Waverly Road on July 30.
The woman said she was told on Aug. 7, “that a friend of a friend” told her daughter the man videotaped her while she was changing into a bathing suit in a bedroom.
The girl’s mother said neither she nor her daughter have seen the video.
The case is still being investigated.
Son assaults mother
A woman from the 200 block of Parkersville Road said she was assaulted by her 33-year-old son.
She said she was awakened at about 2 a.m., Aug. 13, by an argument between her son and his girlfriend.
She said when she walked out of her house her son was “acting crazy.”
She said he told her to stay out of his business and then pushed her.
“She fell to the ground ... in their sand driveway,” the report states.
When the woman said she was calling police, her son’s girlfriend left in a vehicle and her son left on foot.
A deputy spotted the woman’s car and pulled her over but she said she did not know where her boyfriend was at that time.
Another deputy found her boyfriend and he had three knives in his pocket. He said he had been drinking, the report indicates.
He said when his mother walked outside while he was arguing with his girlfriend, he put his arm up to keep his mother away.
He said he accidently pushed her down.
His mother decided she did not want to press charges so the man was released with a warning that he would go to jail if any further incidents took place.
A woman called deputies to her home in the 1000 block of Crooked Oak Drive, Aug. 7, and reported she had been assaulted by her 65-year-old mother-in-law.
The woman said her mother-in-law called her and said she was on the way over to “beat her up,” the report states.
Once the mother-in-law, who lives in Murrells Inlet, arrived, the two began to argue because the Murrells Inlet woman said some negative things had been posted about her on Facebook.
The woman allegedly slapped her daughter-in-law in the right breast and face.
There were no visible injuries and the woman did not require medical attention.
The older woman told deputies one of her daughter-in-law’s friends had posted some personal information about her on Facebook which is why she confronted the victim.
She claims she was assaulted first when her daughter-in-law threw a soft drink on her. That, she said, is why she slapped her.
Neither person wanted to file charges and the older woman could not be placed on trespass notice because she is part owner of the Crooked Oak property.
The deputy said he would conduct a followup to see if the mother-in-law “is causing any further problems.
