Over a span of three days, three members of the cast of TLC’s ‘Welcome to Myrtle Manor‘ were arrested in Myrtle Beach.
In the early hours of April 26, the first to take a trip to the slammer, Amanda Adams, was taken in for driving under the influence. Officers responded to a call regarding a car crash involving a single vehicle and an electric pole. When the officers arrived, they found Adams and her wrecked Jeep Wrangler next to the downed pole. When questioned, Adams admitted to consuming three beers and a shot. Adams reportedly changed her story once she arrived at the jail, saying she had four shots instead of one. Adams was booked with a BAC of .20. Adams will likely require the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help her out of this jam.
On April 27, the following night, another cast member, Taylor Burt, was arrested for something a little more serious–having sex with a minor under the age of 16. The teen girl said she asked her mom to drop her off at the Sound Hole concert venue around 6:30 p.m. Once there, she claimed she messaged Burt about wanting to “hang out.” The girl’s mother had her go to the local hospital to be examined where the girl reportedly refused the exam. She says Burt came to the venue, picked her up, and took her to his apartment. She claims the pair had sex and Burt told her to not tell anyone because he could get into trouble. When the victim’s mother picked her up, she said the teen was not acting right and asked her what was wrong. The girl’s mother then took her to the police department to file a report. They also went to the local hospital to be examined, but the report notes that the girl refused the exam. Also, police failed to find any text messages between the victim and Burt on her phone; she claimed they had been deleted.
Police released Burt from custody the next morning on $25,000 bond. Once an investigation has been completed, the girl’s story could be found true or false. Should her story be true, Burt will need to call a reputable Myrtle Beach law firm so he can be sure he is properly defended by an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
The final arrest occurred on Sunday. A third cast member, Lindsay Colbert, was taken into custody for driving under the influence and speeding. Colbert’s BAC was above .15. According to the police report, an officer pulled Colbert over shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning in the area Waccamaw Boulevard and Route 501. The officer had witnessed Colbert driving at 62 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone. Once he pulled her over, he began questioning Colbert in her car. The officer reported smelling alcohol and seeing an open bottle of rum partially hidden under her driver’s seat. The officer then administered sobriety tests to Colbert, who at one point said “are you just giving me [a hard time] ’cause I am on the show?” Also according to the report, she attempted to insult the officer by making racial slurs and other comments during the ride to jail. Colbert would be better off if she calls a Myrtle Beach criminal defense lawyer to defend her case.
