The Smoking Gun reports that 23 year old Dustin Lowery “had been joking with an African American family and calling them racial slurs” on Saturday night when he was arrested for slapping waitress Megan Churchill.
The incident occurred at Shuckers in Myrtle Beach.
Lowery (who weighs 240lbs and stands 6’4) and his family “were causing a disturbance and using racial slurs towards another family.” Churchill only weighs 120lbs.
The abuse by Lowery and his family became so bad that the black family reportedly decided to leave. When Lowery was also asked to leave, he assaulted Churchill, according to police documents.
“The victim stated that the offender became irate and slapped her in the face,” read the police report. “There was apparent redness to the victim’s face, and signs that the victim had been crying.”
Lowery admits to hitting the waitress, but says he only hit her in the back after she struck him first. He also admits to calling the African-American family racial slurs, but says he was only joking and ” didn’t believe they minded.”
A witness confirmed Churchill’s story, claiming that Lowery not only slapped the waitress across the face, but tried to leave without paying.
Police say Lowery smelled of alcohol while being interviewed. He is charged with 3rd degree assault and battery.
