According to information on the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s website, Ayanna Alleyne, 32, was charged with third-degree assault and battery.

An MBPD incident report states the incident happened at 1903 S. Ocean Blvd., which is the Summer Wind Inn and Suites. Police encountered three women in the parking lot.

One of the women said they had just driven from New York and were told they could check in early, but the woman at the front desk “has been rude and did not allow them to,” the report stated.
