Georgetown police were sent to Carolina Petro Gas on Exchange Street March 31 because of a disorderly 40-year-old man from Raleigh, N.C.
The man was sitting by a trash can outside the store when police arrived.
He was holding an open can of beer.
As an officer approached, the man immediately started cursing, asking what the officer wanted.
When the officer asked what he was doing, the man continued cursing and said he could do whatever he wanted.
The man, who had signs of being intoxicated, was warned several times to calm down and stop cussing. When he refused to comply, he was taken to jail.
Past issues leads to attack
A 30-year-old Pawleys Island man was unsure whether he would press charges against a 38-year-old man who attacked him Sunday morning.
It happened at the Islander Bar at 1:53 a.m.
The victim was bleeding above his eye and around his mouth when deputies arrived.
He said he has “had issues” with the suspect in the past.
The older man reportedly tapped the victim on the shoulder and when the victim turned around the suspect allegedly hit him one or two times.
Bouncers then escorted both men outside.
Drunk and lost
A noise complaint in North Litchfield at about 1 a.m., April 5 resulted in the arrest of an 18-year-old Kingstree man.
The caller reported seeing a group of young people running through the woods making a lot of noise.
While searching the area, a deputy saw a man with no shirt on the front porch of a home on Cole Lane.
The man was beating on the front door trying to get inside.
When the deputy walked up to the house, an elderly woman opened the door and said she did not know the man or why he was at her home.
The man was intoxicated and muddy from running through the woods.
He said he ran when he saw the officer because he was 18 and had been drinking.
The man “was so intoxicated he could not remember where he was supposed to be,” the report states.
He was taken to jail for alcohol violations.
A woman from Willie Road reported her English bulldog puppy was stolen Friday.
She said the four-week-old female puppy was in a kennel with three other puppies.
Only one was taken.
