POLICE BLOTTER: Dog dragged as punishment
A man from Trinity Road in the Yauhannah Community said he was outside his home Friday afternoon when a man driving a pickup truck passed by dragging a dog behind the vehicle.
The complainant said he was able to get the suspect to stop.
He told a deputy the man said he knew he was dragging the dog.
He said he was doing it to teach the animal a lesson for jumping out of the truck.
The suspect said he was on the way to Jamestown to give the dog to someone because he no longer wanted the animal.
The complainant told the man he would take the dog and the suspect agreed and gave him the pet.
The Trinity Road man gave the deputy the man’s license tag number which is registered to a 52-year-old Conway resident.
The deputy reported seeing injuries on the dog’s paws and hind legs from being dragged.
A man from Stuart, Fla., said he parked his cargo trailer at the corner of Browns Ferry and County Line Roads Saturday night.
When he returned Sunday morning he discovered someone had put super glue in three of the locks on his trailer requiring them to be cut off.
The man said he has a competitor that was at the National Sporting Clays Association’s U.S. Open at the Back Woods Quail Club who may be responsible. He said he has worked with the Orlando man in the past but now there is bad blood because they both sell the same merchandise.
A man from Postfoot Circle was treated for an accidental gunshot wound Saturday afternoon.
The man was already in the ambulance when deputies arrived at his home so they spoke with his wife.
The deputies were told a family friend was at their house and they were all talking when the woman said she bought a new gun.
The man asked to hold it, so she retrieved it from her car and handed it to him.
Minutes later a shot was heard and the man said he had shot himself.
The man did not know the gun was loaded.
Was he attacked?
A 70-year-old Murrells Inlet man said he was attacked after a minor traffic accident May 17.
The man said he was driving on Pond Road when he hit a pickup truck.
The driver of the truck “assaulted him with some sort of object and poured beer” on him, the report states.
The man then told the victim he would hurt him if he called the police.
The man had blood running down his face when deputies arrived.
When the officers talked with the man the next day he said he did not hit the truck.
He said he swerved to miss it when the driver pulled in front of him.
He said he blacked out “and heard male voices taunting him,” the report states.
He also said he does not remember being attacked.
The case has been closed due to the conflicting statements.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
