MYRTLE BEACH — Myrtle Beach police charged a Miami Beach dancer after a man reported she attacked him inside a gentleman’s club, according to authorities.
Nicole Maxine Passmore, 25, of Miami Beach, Fla., was charged with third-degree assault and battery, and at 7 a.m. Tuesday she was being held at the Myrtle Beach Jail pending a bond hearing, according to jail records.
Officers were called about 10:15 p.m. Monday to the Masters Gentleman’s Club at 1901 Mr. Joe White Ave., for a fight, police said. Officers learned that the 31-year-old man was inside the club with some friends and he had put some money on the table where they were sitting.
The victim said Passmore came up to the table and tried to the take the money and dance on him, but he told her not to do so, according to the report. The victim said he declined having the dance and told Passmore three times not to take the money from the table.
The victim said Passmore then told him he has a “sweet receding hairline,” so the victim said he told Passmore she was a “snaggle toothed [explicit],” according to the report. The victim said Passmore then hit him five or six times in the face before she walked back stage.
The victim and his friends left the club and called police.
Witnesses confirmed the events for police and when officers arrived they found the victim holding ice to his face where a bruise was forming, according to the report. Club security also told police they saw the incident and identified Passmore as the suspect.
Passmore told police that the victim pushed her, which is why she hit him in the face, according to the report. Officers noted they did not see any injuries on Passmore and witnesses did not corroborate her version of events.
