Summerville Police on patrol Oct. 5, observed a female at La Hacienda on North Main St., arguing with a group of people. The officer observed the female swaying and having trouble standing. Approaching her, the officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol. The woman, Kristin Jennifer Crosby, 24, of Ridgeville, admitted to drinking and said she had no ID.
When asked why she was arguing with the group of people, Crosby told police they were employees of the restaurant and all illegal Mexicans and they should go to jail. She accused them of touching her genital area.
An employee told police that Crosby had been causing a disturbance in the restaurant. Crosby, the employee said, had come into the restaurant, ordered a meal and two alcoholic beverages, finished them all and then wandered around grabbing other diners’ alcoholic beverages out of their hands and off their tables and drinking them. When confronted by the restaurant manager, Crosby began to insult the employees calling them “wetbacks.” Crosby then left the restaurant without paying.
Crosby was arrested and charged with larceny and public intoxication.
Sisters in law, not heart
While her husband was a patient in ICU at SMC Oct. 8, his wife tried to limit the number of visitors at one time, due to the large influx of family and friends, according to Summerville Police.
However, her sister-in-law took umbrage, became irate and grabbed the wife by her hair, punching her in the face and kicking her in the leg before exiting the hospital.
Police could not locate the sister-in-law and the wife said she wanted to prosecute but would not provide further information.
Police advised the wife and hospital staff to call police if the sister-in-law returned.
