A woman found lying in her own feces was arrested for shoplifting, disorderly conduct and public intoxication Sunday at a Myrtle Beach grocery store, according to an incident report.
Myrtle Beach Police were called to the store at 1430 S. Kings Highway around 2:35 p.m. Sunday for a report of an intoxicated woman. Upon arrival, they reportedly found Mary Elizabeth Wood, 57, passed out in her own feces in the handicap stall of the restroom.
Wood had taken two bottles of cooking wine from the shelves, along with bananas and a Gatorade, police said. Wood, who had no money to pay for the items, drank the bottles of wine while the other items had to be discarded because they were in her feces, according to the incident report.
As officers were arresting Wood, she reportedly became belligerent and cursed loudly at the officers as about 20 customers watched, leading to the disorderly conduct charge.
