Reporter Charged with Trespassing

WMBF (Myrtle Beach) anchor Michael Maely has been charged with trespassing after attempting to get a comment from the parents of Tammy Moorer, the woman charged with kidnapping and murdering 20-year-old Heather Elvis.

According to a court summons from the State of South Carolina, on February 27, Maely entered the land of Tammy's father William Caison, where cops says there are about 100 "no trespassing" signs around the property.

Obviously, Maely did not see all those signs or just ignored them. He attempted to talk Tammy Moorer's family in an attempt to get a comment regarding the allegations against her. 

"Hi there, with WMBF News, can we talk to you about your daughter Tammy, or your sister Tammy?" Maely is seen on station video asking the family. 

A woman is seen taking pictures of Maely and using an obscene gesture. The trip ended with a call to police, and Maely says he then left the property.

According to the police report, Caison told police that after being told to leave the property, Maely attempted to force the door open. Maely told police that he did not come within eight feet of Caison's door.

The court summons states that Maely "did not immediately leave the property and remained near the door of the residence in an attempt to interview the occupants for a news story."

Maely has been summoned to appear in court on one charge of trespassing on April 9th.
