Police Blotter: Drinking, dancing and fighting

  • Thursday, December 18, 2014

A 30-year-old woman from the 800 block of Nandina Drive in Murrells Inlet was arrested after a deputy was called to the residence due to a domestic situation.

Another woman – whose age is not on the report – said she is from Ohio and was staying at the home of the suspect and the suspect’s boyfriend.

The three had been at a bar during the evening and when they returned to the suspect’s home they continued to drink, the report states.

The suspect went to lay down while the Ohio woman and the suspect’s boyfriend played a dancing game on an X-Box.

This upset the suspect who attacked her boyfriend causing scratches on his neck and a bruise on his lower lip. The man fought her off and was able to restrain her, according to the statement given to the deputy by the Ohio woman.

The homeowner then took all of the belongings of the Ohio woman and threw them out the front door.

When the deputy talked to the man, he denied his injuries were caused by his girlfriend. He said he received the injuries when he was playing with their dog.

The deputy noted the injury he saw on the man “were consistent with scratching and fighting with human hands,” the report states.

Since she was determined to be the “primary aggressor,” the man’s girlfriend was charged with criminal domestic violence.

Burglary in progress

A deputy was sent to the 4300 block of Daphne Lane around 12:45 a.m. Nov. 21 because of a reported burglary in progress.

The caller said there was a man with a shovel trying to pry open a door to an apartment.

The 45-year-old Murrells Inlet man was detained by an investigator who reported he had “a strong odor of alcohol.”

The man claimed he lived in the apartment in which he was trying to enter.

When asked about the shovel, he first said it was his but later said he does not know where he got it.

The owner of the apartment said the suspect does not live there, so he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Domestic dispute leads to pushing

A deputy was called to a home on Lamar Lane because of a domestic situation between a 38-year-old woman and her 40-year-old husband.

The woman said she was in an office in the home with the door locked. She said her husband knocked on the door and demanded to be let in. She said when she refused to open the door he started kicking it in.

Once inside the office, the man and woman started arguing. During the argument, the man allegedly pushed his wife down on a couch. When she attempted to stand up, he pushed her down again, the report states.

She was eventually able to get up and call 911.

The man denied anything physical took place.

The woman told the deputy she may have overreacted by calling 911. Since she had no injuries, no charges were filed.

BBQ customer discovers broken window

A Georgetown man said he was enjoying supper at Prosser’s Barbecue in Murrells Inlet and when he returned to his 2015 Ford pickup truck he saw the front passenger door window was broken.

The deputy noted finding three long gun rounds on the center console of the truck. The man said he keeps a rifle in the truck. The gun was still inside the truck, the report states.

The deputy told the man whoever caused the damage must have been trying to get the gun as it was visible from the outside of the vehicle.

Damage is estimated at $500.

Stolen dirt bike

A man from the 4800 block of Wesley Road said someone stole his 1973 black Thunderbolt dirt bike from the front of his home.

He said he left the bike in his front yard with a “for sale” sign but he forgot to lock it up.

He believes a man from Turntable Road is responsible because the two have had altercations in the past concerning the bike.
