A roundup of Myrtle Beach’s kookiest crimes

For Weekly SurgeJuly 16, 2013 

That’s Entertainment

Erik Brandon Jenkins told his wife she needed to start making some money. We’re guessing this isn’t what he had in mind.

Jenkins was arrested in the early morning of July 11 by Myrtle Beach police and charged with criminal domestic violence. Allegedly, he came into a motel room and found his wife “entertaining” another man. As to the extent of that entertainment, we’re not 100 percent sure. But, we can venture a guess.

This upset husband reportedly didn’t like that his wife had started her own little entertainment venture without telling him first. So, they apparently started arguing. That argument allegedly turned physical, leading to Jenkins reportedly choking his wife and hitting her before she broke a motel window and screamed for help.

We recommend that, if the wife wants to earn some extra money, try waiting tables. Or a paper route.

Looks like sausage was on the menu

This isn’t a dining experience one is going to want to remember.

A 67-year-old man from Illinois was arrested July 14 in Myrtle Beach because of an incident that allegedly happened at a restaurant on the night of July 12.

The eatery is at 2001 N. Kings Highway, and two waitresses told police that as they waited on the man, his penis was out of his shorts.

“The victims stated he appeared to be intentionally exposing himself each time they approached the table,” the police report stated.

There’s no word yet as to whether sausage was that evening’s special.

Get on the bus

Aaron Everett Taylor was cited on July 12 for trespassing because he had been seen sitting for hours on end at the bus stop on Mr. Joe White Avenue.

This allegedly went on for four days, so when officers finally approached him, Taylor said he was waiting on the Conway bus. Where was that particular bus? Right in front of him. He claimed, however, that he couldn’t see it.

Could glasses be in order here? Or just a more believable excuse?

Play it again, Sam

A Myrtle Beach woman was arrested in the early evening hours of July 14 and charged with criminal domestic violence.

Police allege she started beating her boyfriend with a broom after he put out his cigarette on a piano, which belongs to her daughter.

We’re now having a hard time getting Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” out of our heads. And the theme music for the Wicked Witch of the West.

Time to throw down

When is the best time to start fighting? Apparently, for these two women, right when the cops start to leave.

Delores Cantey and Sandra Anne Tillman were cited early Monday morning (July 15) by Myrtle Beach police for third-degree assault and battery.

Officers reportedly responded to a Yaupon Drive home for a civil dispute. Things seemed to be resolved, but the two women started to throw down just as police were leaving. They saw the whole thing through an open door, according to the arrest report.

We don’t know what led to the scuffle. But we do know that shutting a door should have been the first order of business before these two women put their dukes up.
