MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A New Yorker is facing charges in Myrtle Beach after taking a dangerous leap off a long pier.

But according to the arrest report from Myrtle Beach Police, 44-year-old Hiram Adelbert Gross of Corning, NY did take the time to remove his shoes before jumping off the side of the Second Avenue Pier late Wednesday night.

Since rescue crews had to be called to retrieve him from the ocean, Gross was arrested and charged with diving or jumping from piers.
