Myrtle Beach


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- Myrtle Beach leaders are considering a tougher indecent exposure law that would allow officers to issue tickets or make arrests the first time they see someone baring too much skin.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that the current so-called "thong ordinance" requires officers to issue a warning before issuing tickets. Myrtle Beach has banned thongs on the beach for 16 years.

City spokesman Mark Kruea says the tougher law is not in response to May motorcycle rallies along the Grand Strand, although he acknowledges the biker events bring an increase in illegally exposed skin. The city has approved a number of ordinances to restrict the biker activities.

The Myrtle Beach City Council will consider the new rules for the first time Tuesday.

But 14 years olds can get married without parental consent. Where were the mothers when they made that law?

Are you talking about on the beach or around the town? I don't care what people wear on the beach (however, I giggled the first time I saw a man in a thong) but I wish people would cover up when they leave. It's how people act that should matter. I think making an arrest is going a little too far.
