MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A Maryland man has been arrested after being tased and handcuffed with the assistance of several officers.

Weslie Clark Haneke II, 53, was charged with a slew of crimes, including: simple assault and battery, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct screaming and using profanity in public, and public intoxication, among more, early Friday morning, according to a Myrtle Beach police report.

Following a vehicle crash on Ocean Boulevard, Haneke threatened an alleged victim with a dagger and stated, "I'm going to gut you like a pig," according to the report. After being held back by his friends, Haneke then fled the scene on his motorcycle, the report states.

A Myrtle Beach police officer arrived and spoke to the alleged victim, getting a description of the suspect, the report states.

The officer left the scene to look for Haneke.

Upon arriving at the Hotel Blue, also located on Ocean Boulevard, the officer states, "I saw the security officer backing away from the offender who was yelling and walking towards the guard. I exited and told the offender, who was wearing a black vest with a rear full patch that said "Lords of Mayhem" on top, with a center patch, and Maryland on the bottom rocker to place his hands on the wall/gate."

Haneke refused, according to the report.

The officer deployed a taser and ordered the suspect to the ground. Haneke complied, but refused to put his hands behind his back "while screaming and cursing and giving me the two middle fingers," according to the officer.

More MBPD officers arrived and were able to handcuff Haneke but not control him. A second taser was deployed.

"One of the officers was able to remove a large knife, which was in a sheath on the offender's belt," the police report states.

Haneke was transported to the jail. In addition to the previous charges listed, once Haneke left the scene of the vehicle accident, he was charged with fleeing the scene of a vehicle accident, DUI, and a second-degree assault and battery crime, for hitting a security guard at the Hotel Blue, according to the report.
