Don’t speed if the vehicle’s stolen
Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a civil disturbance call Oct. 29 on Givhans Rd., in Ridgeville. The suspect had left the residence in a teal green SUV. When police saw the vehicle, it sped up, took a corner so fast it almost flipped, almost hit several construction workers, passed a stopped school bus and crashed in a yard, overturned on its roof.
The suspect informed the deputy that she was entrapped and her leg was broken. The vehicle was confirmed stolen from Fayetteville, NC.
Sade Saquandra McGee of Fayetteville was arrested for Driving Under Suspension, Passing a Stopped School Bus, Reckless Driving and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.
When EMS arrived, McGee refused any and all medical attention. McGee also has active warrants out of North Carolina. She was remanded to the Dorchester County Detention Center.
Lost and loaded
Summerville Police were flagged down at the Weatherstone subdivision Oct. 26 for a report of a man lying on the sidewalk. They observed Garry L. Clark, lying on his back with a cold can of beer next to him. When they asked if he knew where he was, he gave an address that did not match his location. He was unsteady on his feet, with slurred speech and a strong smell of alcohol emanating from his person. He was charged with public intoxication.
Caring too much?
Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to St. Germain Dr., in Summerville in response to an anonymous tip about an animal attack on an elderly woman. The 89-year-old woman had her right ear covered with a bandage. She told police that she and her 56-year-old son share a house but their living quarters are separated. She said she had gone to her son’s side and his pit bull had attacked her. She said her son had forgotten to close and lock the door [securing the dog].
When police asked her if she was afraid of the dog, she said “yes and no.” She told them the dog was her son’s only companion and she did not want to cause him to lose that companionship.
She said her son was making some changes to ensure her safety.
The son told police he was barring a sliding glass door and putting extra fasteners on the other door to make sure the dog wouldn’t get to his mother. He showed police paperwork proving his dog was up-to-date on its shots.
