Two arrested, one still wanted for Carolina Beach fight


CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Two men have been arrested and one more is still wanted for a fight two weeks ago in Carolina Beach.

Carolina Beach Police say Joshua Lamb and Johnny Lee Wilson turned themselves in to the Sampson County Sheriff's Office and quickly bonded out of jail. Investigators are still looking for Adonis Lee Toomer of Clinton.

The men are charged in connection to a fight April 27. According to a witness, whose identity we have chosen to withhold due to her age, two separate groups of people had had been out on the Royal Winner Princess II Party Cruise that day. When they returned to shore, her group was trying to decide on rides home when her 32-year-old cousin got in a verbal altercation with a member of the other group, which she believed to be from Clinton.

During the altercation the witness says her cousin tried to use a shovel to protect himself but was repeatedly hit in the head with bricks from a nearby building. He suffered severe head trauma and was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery.

A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of etc., etc., etc.

During the cruise why didn't the person in authority on the boat curtail the liquid refreshments to certain people if they appeared to be getting somewhat rambunctious and or rowdy? Or, at the minimum call ahead to have a police officer from Carolina Beach waiting when the good ship Lollipoop docked. That possible would had made certain individuals think twice (If they are /were capable of such a strenuous task.)before attacking people. I think that the owner of the good ship Lollipoop should should shoulder some responsiblility for what occurred that evening.

Them mens ain't frum roun' heah...

They don't look like the kind of gentlemen who would get in trouble.
