A suspect described as a “white male” shouted that “black lives matter!” while trying to get away from South Carolina police Saturday night.

Officer D. Snyder explained that Joshua Aresmandy Reyes loudly exclaimed, “black lives matter,” while officers had him in handcuffs, reports Myrtle Beach Online.

Myrtle Beach police officers came to the scene after being called about a fight between two men around 10:30 p.m. When police arrived, security guards already had the two men separated and in custody.

Snyder tried to get an explanation from Reyes, only to have him shout profanities, the police report maintained. Police arrested Reyes and put him in handcuffs.

Reyes allegedly made a fuss over his handcuffs because they were too tight. Police went to fix them and Reyes “began tensing up his hands and stated we should tighten them,” Snyder wrote in the report.

At that point, Reyes tried to get away from the officers, while repeating, “black lives matter.” Police took Reyes to the police car when Reyes “suddenly reared back and slammed his head on the hood of my car in a violent manner,” the report said.

Police managed to get Reyes under control. He was later charged with disorderly conduct and damage to property.

In a similar incident, a man found himself in trouble with the police after declaring “black lives matter” during an arrest. Police pulled over Dominique Desha Green for not using his turning signal or wearing a seat belt in September.

Green revealed that he had cocaine hidden in his car as he live-streamed his interaction with police officers. He yelled “black lives matter” before police finally arrested him.
