MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 34-year-old Myrtle Beach woman has been charged with attempted murder and unlawful neglect of a child after allegedly trying to hit a man with a car during an argument over a cinnamon bun, while a teenager was in the passenger seat, according to a police report.
Amy Joe Derepentigny was arrested by Myrtle Beach Police on Tuesday, and transferred to J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Wednesday.
Police responded to the 400 block of 28th Avenue North Wednesday in reference to an incident involving a motor vehicle collision, according to Derepentigny's arrest warrants.
The victim told police that he got into an argument with Derepentigny at the Seamart on 25th Avenue North over "not having enough money for a cinnamon bun."
