A deputy was patrolling the area of Rockin’ Hard Saloon on Highway 17 Business in Murrells Inlet May 14 when he witnessed something unexpected.
“When I got closer to the bar I saw a white female lift her shirt and expose her bare breasts and rub them in a sexual manner during what appeared to be a wet T-shirt contest,” the deputy wrote in his report.
The officer called for backup before entering the bar area.
One woman who was on stage was detained. She said she had pasties on and that she was not the woman the deputy saw.
The other women who had participated in the contest could not be located.
The woman who was detained was given a warning for indecent exposure. She was not charged because the deputy was not certain she was the one he saw.
The owner of the bar told the deputy she did not plan to hold any other wet T-shirt contests that week.
A 27-year-old Summerville woman said she was at the Beaver Bar May 16 and was sexually assaulted by a 50-year-old man after she finished riding the mechanical bull.
The woman said she met the man earlier in the evening and did not know his last name.
The portion of the report that describes what the man is accused of doing to the woman was redacted by the Sheriff’s Office.
The woman said after the assault occurred, she left and walked to another nearby business where she works.
The man soon showed up at that location, which is when the woman decided to call 911, about two hours after the alleged incident.
When asked why she waited so long to call, the woman said she was going to ignore it until her friends encouraged her to file a report.
The suspect was not identified. The investigation continues.
Officers assaulted, threatened
A Georgetown County corrections officer was assaulted and another was threatened by an 18-year-old inmate May 15.
The officer said he was transferring the man to a cell when the suspect spit in his face, head butted him, then spit in his face twice more.
When another guard intervened, the man reportedly told her “I know where you live and I am going to get you.”
The inmate was expected to be charged with throwing bodily fluids on an officer, assault and battery and intimidation.
Where’s the doughnuts
Two employees of Andrews Medical Center said a 36-year-old man from Cades stopped by their workplace on April 13 and said he was selling doughnuts for his daughter’s school.
The two complainants and three other women gave the man money for boxes of doughnuts but, as of May 14, the treats had not been delivered.
The women said they have not seen the man since the day they gave him their money.
They also said he was seen at least one other place selling doughnuts.
As of the time the report was taken, the women said they did not want to press charges.
Dogs kill chickens
A woman from Birthright Ave. between Georgetown and Andrews said a stray dog killed 11 of her chickens.
The woman said the incident happened May 14 when the dog was able to move the chicken wire enough to squeeze into the pen.
Animal Control was notified.
It’s unknown if the dog was found.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
