MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) A Myrtle Beach man remains in custody Wednesday after he reportedly bit and kicked three police officers.

An arrest report provided by Myrtle Beach Police states that officers responded to 6th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach around 4:35 p.m. Monday afternoon to find an intoxicated, older male suspect on the ground refusing to go inside who later became aggressive with officers and neighbors.

A report concerning this incident obtained by WMBF News states that officers arrived at that location in response to a reported disturbance. Officers were flagged down by a female witness who reported that the intoxicated male had been drinking all day with another female who was sitting in the yard in a chair, and the witness wanted the other female to leave.

The witness further explained that the female suspect had begun to undress in front of her company and she was not happy about it. The witness stated that had asked other neighbors to assist her helping the male suspect to come in to the house, but he shoved them away and ran after the female suspect.

The male suspect, 68-year-old James Lee Owens, was placed under arrest for public intoxication, and EMS responded to evaluate his physical state.

While in handcuffs, the report states that Mr. Owens bit one of the officers on the leg.

The two other responding officers then escorted Mr. Owens to the patrol car when he reportedly began kicking them. Once he was placed in the car, he began kicking the windows in the vehicle.

Booking records for J. Reuben Long Detention Center show Owens is charged with three counts of assault on police officer, resisting arrest and public disorderly. He remains in custody Wednesday afternoon on a $2,970 bond.
