On patrol a Summerville Police officer spotted a vehicle with a dealer paper tag but no taillights. The officer pulled the vehicle over and informed the driver the taillights were not on. The driver provided the officer with his driver’s license. When he ran the license through the SC DMV and NCIC for suspensions and warrants, the information came back that the driver has an outstanding warrant out of the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office for Contempt of Court.
After a collision on the Berlin G. Myers Parkway, police received calls of an erratic driver who was all over the road, hitting curbs and narrowly missing road workers. The reckless driver reportedly crashed with a second vehicle on Berkeley Circle and North Main Street before driving behind Sticky Fingers.
The responding officer observed a small black Honda and made contact with the driver who was sitting behind the wheel “stroking his fingers through his hair and mumbling unintelligibly.” When asked to exit the vehicle, the officer reported the driver moved “in slow motion [like) a movie clip.”
Eventually the driver was able to exit the vehicle and, after falling a number of times, was placed in handcuffs. The driver apologized profusely to the officer for falling to which the officer replied, “you’re just really drunk.”
The driver informed the officer “I am comatose.”
A Datamaster breath sample test registered the driver’s blood alcohol level at .28%.
