The husband of North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley has been charged with stalking a woman.
The State Law Enforcement Division in Myrtle Beach says the husband of Mayor Marilyn Hatley, David Hatley, allegedly stalked a woman, whose name cannot be released, from February to May of 2008. The report says Hatley harassed the woman several times, and SLED did an “assessment threat,” calling for Hatley to not contact the woman again.
WBTW in Myrtle Beach reports the question is: Why weren’t any charges filed? According to the report, the 38-year-old woman called the North Myrtle Beach police when Hatley showed up to her house, banged on her bedroom window, yelling at her to let him in. After that, the woman says a keep watch was issued. There were several other instances the woman told police about, but it is unclear if the woman ever pressed charges. A report was filed in May of last year, and Hatley showed up one more time, causing the victim to tell him she was going to call the police. Since then, Hatley has not been seen around the woman.
News 13 tried to reach Hatley to hear his side of the story, but they were unable to do so.
