SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - An hours-long Horry County police and SWAT standoff at the Plantation Resort in the Deerfield Community of Surfside Beach ended peacefully Wednesday night, with one man in custody, according to HCPD.

Lieutenant Raul Denis said a security guard at Plantation Resort saw a man sunbathing in the parking lot. The guard approached the man to tell him it was against HOA rules, and the man became violent.

The SWAT team was called around 7:30 p.m., and the man was arrested without any problems, and taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
