Watch the trees
Summerville Police attempted to pull a vehicle over on Highway 78 near Bryant Street. The vehicle failed to pull over, passing numerous places where it was safe to do so. Finally, the vehicle turned onto North Walnut Street and pulled over. The driver immediately exited the vehicle and ran into the woods towards North Cedar Street.
Several SPD units saw the subject running through Daniel’s Orchard and the Presbyterian Home on West 9th North Street.
They caught him running down the first street in the Presbyterian Home complex. Police learned he had an active warrant for his arrest from Goose Creek. They transported him to SPD where he requested EMS because he had hurt his arm running into a tree while trying to evade police.
DCEMS responded, checked him out and cleared him. He was then turned over to the Goose Creek Police Department.
Breathing on the cops
Summerville Police were called to the Abby Lane Apartment complex around 2 a.m., the third time in one night, for loud, disorderly, intoxicated subjects. On their way there they sighted two brothers in the parking lot of Heritage Square. Both had been in the apartment complex during the prior two calls. The third call was for an unconscious subject lying on the ground. Police could not locate any such person but while searching came across the brothers loitering in the empty shopping center.
While speaking to them, the officer could tell one of them was under the influence of alcohol as he could not only smell it, but the speech and actions of the subject were slow and lethargic, slurry and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. The subject was arrested for public intoxication.
