Myrtle Beach security involved in confrontation www.privateofficer.com
Myrtle Beach police were called to an Ocean Boulevard hotel after a 24-year-old man argued with security guards, who the man said threaten to use a Taser on him, according to a police report.
The man told police he had a confrontation with the 27-year-old security guard Tuesday and then just before 3 a.m. Wednesday the guard confronted him again and threatened to use the Taser on him, according to the report.
The guard told police on Tuesday he saw the man get into a pickup truck in front of the hotel, the Sea Crest at 803 S. Ocean Blvd., and go to the parking garage across the street, according to the report. The guard followed and a verbal argument occurred between the men then.
The next day, the guard said he and another guard saw a vehicle driving recklessly in the parking garage and confronted the driver, according to the report. The 24-year-old man then told the guard he was not driving and made verbal threats toward the guards.
The guard said he notified his dispatch to call police and the other guard pulled out his pepper spray and asked the man to stop, according to the report. The guard grabbed the man’s arm and the man swung at him before he ran away.
The guards chased the man and grabbed him when he tried to jump a fence but got his leg stuck on it, according to the report. One of the guards said the man hit him twice before he ran away.
Police evicted the man from the hotel, according to the report.
