Angry customer claimed to own county, threatened carwash employee

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A customer who was sprayed with soap intimidated a carwash employee.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — According to, an employee at Detrick’s Car Wash in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, said that a customer who hadn’t rolled up his window before the wash began came back at the end of the wash and threatened him.

The Myrtle Beach police report indicated that the customer reportedly said, “I own Myrtle Beach and Horry County. I do what I want, and I know all the cops,” the article continued.

The employee told police that the man, who was identified in the report only as a 20- to 30-year-old “large, black male,” made the threatening comments after being sprayed with soap during the wash cycle, as his driver’s side window was still down when he entered the wash, the article noted.

According to the article, the employee then claimed that when the man was leaving the site, “He raised an object from the console of the vehicle and moved it towards the steering wheel. The victim thought it was possibly a gun but that it could have also been a knife or a stick,” the report stated.

A separate employee who left the carwash before police came to the scene said that he thought the man had raised a gun magazine, the report noted; however, the article added, no one was able to definitively identify the object as a firearm.

Security cameras at the site, however, did capture a good picture of the man and the vehicle, the article concluded; police were able to look up the car tag, which is registered to a woman in Georgetown County, just south of Myrtle Beach.
