Don't Go To Isle of Palms SC - Worst Police Ever

By
Home Inspector with Home Inspection Carolina

This is the most unprofessional law enforcement outfit I have ever encountered.   My wife and I decided to go to Isle of Palms and Stay at Wild Dunes.  We rode bicycles in from Wild Dunes into Isle of Palms. We were hot and sweaty and stopped at the BP station in the middle of town and got some Lifewater, Diet Coke, and 1 Michelob Ultra.  We had no place to sit so we just sat on their side of the gas station.  An Isles Palms police officer drives up and proceeds to tell me he should lock me up and take me to jail and how stupid I am (I am not kidding and I am a 44 year old business owner, married father of two)  He proceeded to tell me how stupid I was 4 times threatened to lock me up twice..  He told the other Officer Johnson who then drove up to write me a "STUPID TICKET' The ticket is $1095.  My wife and I weren't aware of this law or this ordinance nor were we ever anything less than respectful to the law enforcement.  The two things that are so appalling are our treatment by the Isle of Palms Police and the amount of the fine.  We would have gladly thrown it away and this police drama was totally unnecessary.  I would not like to go back to Isle of Palms and wouldn't advise anyone else to go there if this is how they treat people contributing to their economy.  I would recommend another beach with more professional police.

You were drinking beer next to the gas station?

Maybe...just maybe...the police were correct in their assessment.

WHAT!?? OMG!! This is rediculous! What was the charge for? You can sit outside of a restaurant on their patrio/porch, etc.. to drink a beer but not outside of a gas station? There is REAL CRIME all over the place, robberies, rapes, muggings, etc...  And they choose to pick on two of the nicest people on this planet??? When is your court date? I'll go to defend you!!!

Totally saddened by this Preston ...
