Matter of record — An officer was dispatched to the Jukebox on Highway 17 around 2 a.m. Sunday “in reference to an injured person,” a report said.
“Upon arrival I made contact with (the complainant),” the officer continued. “(He) was sitting on a chair with his right leg elevated and his ankle stabilized. (He) appeared to be very intoxicated and could not give me all of his information. EMS arrived on scene shortly after I did and placed (the man) on a stretcher and took him to the ambulance. (His) ankle appeared to be broke or dislocated.”
The officer then spoke with a witness, who said “(The complainant) was flirting with a group of women when he tried to lean on a table and fell over. According to (witness) that is when (complainant’s) ankle got hurt.” The man was taken to Memorial by ambulance.
