Get a restraining order
Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a complaint of stalking Dec. 29, in North Charleston. The victim told police that she suspected her estranged husband had put a GPS tracker on her vehicle and had gone to a garage to get assistance locating it. The tracker was found attached to the gas tank. Deputies say they have been called to her aid four times from Dec. 25 to 29, and that she has, on several occasions, told them she is in fear of her life.
Her estranged husband told deputies, according to the incident report, he was too busy with his work schedule to meet with them to discuss the issue.
A family that drinks together…
Dorchester County deputies responded to a report of a fight in progress, involving family members, on Fannie Dr., in Summerville Jan. 1. As the first deputy on scene began separating people, he quickly found himself surrounded by a small crowd of family members who were getting more and more hostile toward law enforcement, according to the incident report. As other deputies arrived, another, louder, commotion started in the side yard and deputies observed other deputies engaged in what appeared to be an active fight. More personnel arrived on scene to help get the situation under control. EMS was called for injuries to the two family members who started the fight. All family members smelled of alcohol, according to the report.
Apparently one of the family members had been issued two traffic citations earlier in the evening and the fight arose over who was going to pay for the citation. One person shoved the other’s head into the refrigerator and the fight erupted, the report stated.
