Myrtle Beach woman jailed after argument with husband, complaints of illness

A Myrtle Beach woman was arrested on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct after police were called for domestic disturbance in the 400 block of Fourth Avenue North, according to a police report.

Charlene Richardson, 37, was charged when officers were called to the apartment because she said her husband put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her when she got home from work, police said. The woman said they then walked to a nearby bar and had a drink.

The 49-year-old man told police he picked Richardson up from work and they went to the bar where they got into an argument about her boyfriends, according to the report. The man said there was no physical abuse.

A witness told police he saw Richardson yell at the man and slap him in the face, according to the report. Police noted Richardson was highly intoxicated and smelled of alcohol.

After officers arrested her, she complained of chest pains, gagged and spit and then passed out and shook as if she was having a seizure, according to the report. She was taken by EMS to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center to be checked. In the ambulance, Richardson refused medical treatment and told officials about several different medical conditions.

When Richardson was released from the hospital, she complained of problems again after officers put her in a patrol car and on the way to jail, according to the report.
