MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Police arrested a corrections officer from North Carolina early Sunday morning for allegedly throwing a block of concrete at a man's vehicle in Myrtle Beach, according to reports.

At about 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning, a Myrtle Beach Police officer responded to 8th St. North and Oak St. for suspicious circumstances. According to the police report, the officer saw 24-year-old Glen Tucker throw what appeared to be a piece of concrete at a vehicle. He then saw Tucker attempting to break into the vehicle, and he was immediately detained.
