High Flying Chi
A Myrtle Beach woman seriously injured a dog during a weird fight with her boyfriend last week.
True, but very strange.
Instead of tossing the boyfriend’s clothes or shoes out of a window, she grabbed his chihuahua and sent the pooch sailing from a third floor balcony.

How mean is that?
Whatever happened to just making drunk phone calls or driving by his house, like a normal person?
The incident happened Nov. 11, as the couple argued at the Summer Sands hotel on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, reports said.
In addition to scratching his face, police said the women tossed her boyfriend’s puppy.
At press time, Jamie Taylor Gonzalez, 31, was charged with animal abuse and criminal domestic violence.
She was being held in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
The dog was being treated for its injuries as a local animal hospital.
Listen, when you're mad, throw clothes and personal items over the balcony.
Aim for the guy's car if you're really angry.
Leave the tiny dog out of domestic arguments.
Stiletto Smack Down
Speaking of random, weird violence, an exotic dancer at Chez Joey’s gentlemen’s club in Myrtle Beach reportedly used her clear plastic shoe to beat another worker.
The woman apparently had a beef with the female bartender, reports said.
The women met in the bathroom on Nov. 13 and began scrapping.
Maybe the victim told the attacker her shoes were ugly.
That would make sense, since the weapon was actually a six-inch, clear, spiked-heel stiletto.
The alleged assailant reportedly left bruises, swelling and cuts on the victim's face.
On Tuesday www.thesmokinggun.com reported that “Carolynn Wright, 22, was arrested by Myrtle Beach cops and charged with assaulting the 24-year-old victim at the Chez Joey strip joint. Wright, appeared this morning in General Sessions court, where her bond was set at $5000 on the felony count.”
The victim, Ashley Michaels-Hoder, said she couldn’t escape the attacker.
The woman grabbed her hair and held her as she whacked her with the shoe, she said.
She was taken to Grand Strand Regional Hospital for treatment.
The victim must have been telling the truth, because you don't get those type injuries from being whacked in the face with a basic flat.
Balcony Toss, Part II
Here we go again.
On Friday, police were called to another strange incident involving violence and a hotel balcony.
This time, a man said he was tossed off the fifth floor of a hotel after he said he was chased and robbed by several teenagers.
A person passing by heard the man splash into a pond, after he was thrown overboard in the 2300 block of Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach.
No arrests have been made.
Meanwhile, don't walk near balconies in Myrtle Beach.
You could be hit by flying dogs, people or other random weapons of Ocean Boulevard destruction.
Two men who thought they had escaped the long arm of the law were captured by officers with Operation Intercept, according to a recent press release.
Curtis D. Clark, 20, and Deshawn Tolbert, 18, left New York hoping that they wouldn't be followed to South Carolina, said officials with the U.S. Marshal’s Service.
The men were accused of a string of crimes, ranging from criminal conspiracy and attempted murder to drug charges and possession of weapons.
Their crimes were related to activities involving the Bloods street gang, investigators said.
Despite having scads of police looking for them, Clark and Tolbert didn't do that great of a job hiding.
They reportedly didn't think that news of their crimes would follow them across state lines.
The men were arrested in nearby Marion.
Police found Tolbert in a closet, behind a water heater.
Clark was lying in bed, police said.
Not exactly great places to hide from police.
The men were to be taken back to New York, police said.
