Claiming to be a serial killer, a customer at a Hilton Head Island bar offered to drown his waiter's boss Wednesday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The man was at The Flying Pig with two young children at about 6:30 p.m. when he began asking an employee strange questions, the report said. He told the waiter he had returned from Afghanistan two weeks ago, used the 19-year-old employee's name to search for information about him online, and then asked if the employee wanted him to throw his boss into the pool and drown him.

The man left soon after with the two children, saying his family was waiting, according to the report. The employee told deputies he was not sure if the man was joking.
