Report: Man takes porn to school to watch

HILTON HEAD -- A 29-year-old Hilton Head Island man told deputies he entered a closed Hilton Head elementary school to watch pornography, a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report released Monday said.

Deputies were called to the Hilton Head Island International Baccalaureate Elementary School on School Road at 7 p.m. Sunday after an alarm was activated.

When deputies arrived, they saw a man leaving the building and ordered him to stop, the report said. The man ran and dove behind some bushes, where deputies arrested him.

The man told deputies he brought a pornographic video tape with him to watch on one of the school's monitors.

Deputies believe he entered the school through an unlocked door.

He was charged with trespassing and fleeing to evade arrest, the report said.

Deputies found no damage to the school, the report said.
