A deputy dispatched to the scene of an accident near Reevesville met with the complainant, a 29-year-old Columbia man who was the driver of the one vehicle involved. The man told the deputy that while he was in Bowman, S.C., some unknown male subject jumped into his car and pointed a gun at his head. The man was somewhat unclear with his story, only that the unknown subject(s) wanted his money and made him drive.
The officer noted that the driver seemed highly intoxicated, with slurred speech and unsteady balance. The officer asked the man if he was telling the truth or if he made up the story to cover up the real reason behind the accident. The man then became verbally abusive toward the officer and to EMS workers on the scene.
The evidence at the scene showed the vehicle had been traveling at a high speed on Reevesville Road and apparently went through a stop sign, then went off the road and hit another road sign before going airborne, striking a tree, and spinning around in a ditch.
The driver was transported to Trident Medical Center by EMS; the car was towed at the request of the driver’s father.
An officer on patrol about 10:45 p.m. in the Oakbrook Park subdivision discovered a car backed into a field at the end of the street. Upon closer investigation, the officer saw that the windows were fogged up and there were people moving around inside.
When the officer approached the car on the driver’s side, he found a naked black female sitting in the driver’s seat and a naked black male sitting in the back seat. The officer knew both subjects and asked them what they were doing.
The male subject replied that they were on break from school; they both then told the officer they came to this location to have sex and they stopped when the officer walked up to the vehicle.
Once both subjects put their clothes back on the officer then ran their identification through dispatch. Unfortunately for the male subject, dispatch reported that he had an active warrant on him out of Cayce for failure to appear in court. He was then arrested and transported to the detention center.
The female’s information returned clear; she was released with a warning.
