HORRY COUNTY, SC – A group of Central Virginia teenagers arrested early Saturday morning in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina were riding around in a pick up truck full of beer.
“I observed a 2002 GMC Sierra pick-up truck with 13 individuals hanging out the back bed of the truck. I could see open containers in the hands of several individuals and open cases of Bud Light in the back of the truck,” a North Myrtle Beach police officer wrote in the arrest report.
“Inside the truck was an open case of Michelob Ultra and an unopened can of Old Milwaukee’s Best in the glove box, as well as a beer bong in the backseat,” the report continued. “In the bed of the truck, I discovered open cases and cans of Bud Light and Bud Light Lime, as well as open bottles of liquor.”
All the teenagers, except for the driver, admitted to the officer that they had been drinking.
The 16 teenagers, many of whom were from New Kent County, were arrested and booked at the Horry County jail between 1:30 and 3:30 a.m. Saturday. All were released on bail later that morning, according to the sheriff’s department website.
