Brothers refuse to prosecute each other after fight, police say

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Police say they were called out to a dispute off Beauclair Ct. in the subdivision of Berkshire Forest, and the call came in around 4 a.m. Monday morning after an argument or fight between two brothers.

Police say the brothers fought until one began choking the other into unconsciousness, according to police. The unconscious brother’s girlfriend then hit the other brother in the head with a porcelain vase.

The brothers refused to prosecute each other, and it was determined that the girlfriend acted legally in defense of her boyfriend, according to an HCPD news release. The case was officially closed.

The incident was originally reported as a stabbing in Horry County, however, police determined that no stabbing occurred.
