When you think of Horry County, you think Myrtle Beach. But maybe you should start thinking horse sex.
The Myrtle Beach Sun News reports that:
A Longs man remains jailed after police say he was caught on video surveillance having sexual intercourse with a horse at an Horry County stable for the second time in the last three years.
Rodell Vereen, 50, is charged with buggery and trespassing after a woman who owns Lazy B Stables on Coates Road in the Wampee section of Horry County told officers she caught the suspect having sex with a horse.
``That stable was my getaway, my stress relief,'' said Barbara Kenley, who has owned the stable for 20 years. ``Everybody has a place they like to go to get away. Now it is totally destroyed. It is the only thing I have in life."
Only in South Carolina.
What are the health risks of having sex with a horse? And why would anyone want to put themselves at a crack at Mr. Ed? Or in this case Sugar.
Kenley said Vereen was having sex with a 21-year-old horse named Sugar. Kenley said the horse is being treated for infections related to the incidents.
Kenley, who lives four miles away from the stable, told officers she had video of Vereen ``having relations'' with one of her horses on July 19, according to the report.
``I had given police surveillance video before and they weren't able to identify him,'' Kenley said. ``And I wanted to catch him firsthand. It was just a matter of time before I caught him.''
On Monday night, Kenley said she went to check on the horses and saw an unknown vehicle parked near her property.
Kenley found Vereen behind a barn where the horses are kept and pointed a shotgun at him. Kenley called police on her cell phone and waited for officers to arrive.
``He was very subdued,'' Kenley said. ``He was like ... cold. He may have been in shock.''
Kenley said she asked Vereen what he was doing at the barn and that he said he was looking for a bathroom.
I bet he was looking for a bathroom.
