Conway, SC – The head cheerleading coach at Coastal Carolina University was arrested on a host of charges after she allegedly refused to exit her boyfriend’s truck after he ended the relationship. Elizabeth Hadley Appenzeller, 31, allegedly resisted arrest and assaulted a police officer while drunk after the break-up on Sunday afternoon.
Conway Police officers handcuffed the cheer coach and charged her with domestic violence, assault, public intoxication, and resisting arrest, the Daily Mail reports. Law enforcement documents maintain the South Carolina university cheerleading instructor admitted to hitting her former beau in the face and note that she refused to get out of the pickup truck after getting the bad news. Officers also claim that she became boisterous, used profanity, and kicked one of the arresting officers. The unhappy university instructor had to be physically restrained.
When law enforcement officers arrived, the woman was sitting in the bed of the pickup truck and the man claiming to be the victim was inside the cab. He told the responding officers when he tried to retrieve some belongings from the spirit leader’s home she got upset that he had not slept over the previous night, and then she refused to hop out of the truck so he could leave.
The now ex-significant other called for police assistance after the cheer instructor allegedly struck him inside the vehicle, Fox News reports. Elizabeth Appenzeller was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, according to Myrtle Beach Online. A $12,950 bond was set in the case. CCU has not issued an official comment about the arrest but did confirm Appenzeller is employed by the school.
