Hwy 165, the Bronx…
Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Highway 165 near Ashley Ridge High School June 14 at the request of the South Carolina Highway Patrol. On arriving they found a gold 2005 Buick LeSabre parked on the side of the road. All its windows were smashed and quarter panels dented. The vehicle’s owner said there had been no damage to the vehicle when she had left it there because of a flat tire. The owner had the vehicle removed.
Drunk and disgusting
Summerville Police charged a driver with Drunkenness June 17, after responding to reports of the driver driving while vomiting out the window. The silver Ford Explorer was parked in front of Martins Creek when police arrived and the driver was passed out half-in and half-out of the vehicle. Police woke the driver up observing vomit on the driver’s feet and the vehicle door. When the driver refused to follow police requests to call someone for a ride, he was arrested.
Hit, run, abandon
