— Horry County police charged a Conway man in connection with the assault of family members who reported he threatened them with a gun and drove his pickup truck into his home, according to a police report.

Danny Allen Bellamy, 46, of Conway was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 12:04 a.m. Thursday on charges of second-degree assault and battery, pointing and presenting a firearm at a person and first-offense criminal domestic violence, according to jail records. Bellamy remains jailed on $5,505 bond.

Horry County police were called at 10 p.m. Wednesday to the 3100 block of Hall Road after someone reported Bellamy had driven into the side of his house, according to the report. Officers also learned family members had been assaulted and threatened with a rifle.

When police arrived they learned Bellamy had ran into a nearby wooded area, so officers set up a perimeter and could hear Bellamy speaking and moving as he talked to someone on a cellphone, according to the report. Officers were able to take Bellamy into custody.

Officers learned from a 52-year-old man that he heard a crash and went to see if Bellamy was ok after the truck hit the house, according to the report. The victim said he argued with Bellamy, who then pushed and punched him in the head.

The victim said two others, a 51-year-old woman and 15-year-old girl, pulled Bellamy off of him and they were hit in the process, according to the report. The victims reported Bellamy ran into his home and retrieved a rifle before he ran into the wooded area.
