42-year-old kicks police officer, faces multiple charges

Myrtle Beach, SC -

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A 42-year-old woman from Lancaster, SC, is facing charges after she assaulted a police officer while being arrested late Saturday night.

Officers with the Myrtle Beach Police Department were dispatched to Ocean Front Photo at 1101 N. Ocean Blvd. around 11:45 p.m. in reference to a trespasser refusing to leave the store property. Upon arrival, police located what they described in reports as an intoxicated woman.

A witness told police on scene the suspect, identified as Brenda Sims, struck one of the store clerks with a closed fist in the face after she was asked to leave store property.

While a police officer attempted to arrest the woman, she became combative once she was asked to enter the officer's patrol car. The officer reported the woman kicked him in the upper torso area while kicking and screaming.

The combative female caused the officer to fall down on her, and he remained in that spot until back-up officers arrived on scene.

Sims, according to Myrtle Beach Police, was charged with assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, trespassing, breach of peace and public intoxication in connection to the incident.

The woman was treated by EMS on scene and transported to the Myrtle Beach Jail.
