An officer was called to Summerville Medical Emergency Room in response to a subject making a disturbance. EMS had brought in the subject for treatment due to his being grossly intoxicated. At some point, the subject became boisterous, yelling and cursing at nurses and other hospital staff members.
The officer spoke to the subject and told him his behavior was disturbing other patients and would not be tolerated. The subject yelled back that he wasn’t scared of jail and told the officer to take him to jail.
So the officer did.
One who is driving without a license and does not wish to draw attention might think twice about pumping up the volume.
An officer on patrol was slowing down for the traffic light at Berlin G. Meyers Parkway and North Main Street when he noticed extremely loud music coming from a car in front of him. In fact, the music was so loud it was making the windows of his patrol car vibrate from about 75 feet away, according to the incident report.
The officer rolled down his window in an attempt to get the driver’s attention, but the driver, after looking at the officer, ignored him, then drove through the traffic light. The officer stopped the driver and informed him of the town’s noise ordinance; he also asked for license, registration and proof of insurance. The driver provided registration and proof of insurance but said he did not have his license with him. He did provided a name, social security number and birth date, but the social security did not match the license.
The officer the detained the subject and asked him if he wanted to provide his real name and date of birth; the subject again stated he had provided the correct information, at which time the officer told him the social security number did not match.
The subject finally gave his real name and when the officer ran it, the license came back suspended and that he had an active warrant from North Charleston Police Department for 7th offense driving under suspension.
The officer then arrested the subject and transported him to the Dorchester County Detention Center.
A Summerville man reported that someone threw an object at his house. The complainant’s wife added that she saw a white vehicle drive slowly by the house at about 2:45 in the morning then turn around and stop at a neighbor’s house. She said she then heard something hit the house so she ran inside to get her husband. They both ran outside and saw a white male subject running from the side of their house, then get into the passenger side of the strange vehicle and take off.
The complainants got the license number; the tag came back to a man the complainant knows. The complainant said he believed the man to be responsible because the complainant’s son owes him money.
The responding officer found no objects or visible damage to the complainant’s house.
