Drunk driver gives up and goes to jail
Share and share alike
A man living in a local trailer park heard a man and a woman arguing. He peeped out of his window to see what was going on and saw a man across the street push the woman who lived in the trailer. The man and the woman were inside the trailer but the yelling was so loud he heard it in his own trailer. He grew concerned, according to a report, and called police.
It turns out, the couple do not have an intimate relationship. The female owns the trailer and agreed to let her friend live there for the next three months until his job started.
The argument was said to be started because the male party woke up from sleeping and went to get something to eat. His food was nowhere to be found, the report said, because the woman ate it. This made him infuriated and the pair began arguing with each other. The argument escalated to a face-to-face confrontation where they were screaming in each other’s personal space. The witness said that’s when he saw the male push the female onto the couch.
The male said the female pushed him, but he did not want to press charges. The female told police she never touched him. She said she did not want to press charges for the man pushing her. She just wanted him gone.
The man agreed to leave the trailer and go stay with a friend down the road.
A 37-year-old Charleston man decided to stop into a Mount Pleasant bar. He had a few drinks and struck up a conversation with the bartender. However, he asked her multiple times if he happened to know where his friend lived. He said the friend lived in the neighborhood in which the bar was situated. She told she had no clue and he left. According to the report, he came back to the bar a while later and ordered another drink.
He then started asking her again if she knew where his friend lived. She again told him no, and this time told him to stop asking her that.
This made him extremely angry, according to the report. He stormed off to the bathroom. A short time later the bartender heard a loud crash in the men’s bathroom.
The bartender ran over and when the customer came out, she looked inside. The man had allegedly taken the back of the toilet off and smashed it on the ground. The bartender then called the cops.
Police arrived and questioned the man. He said he got a ride to the bar and had a few drinks. He said when the bartender could not tell him how to get to his friend’s house, he took a walk to try and find it. He said he stopped at one resident’s house and scared them and decided he better walk back to the bar.
He told the officer that when he asked the bartender if she could help him, he got angry due to her language toward him. He said, according to the report, that he made a lot of bad decisions that night and lost control. He said he was very sorry for breaking the toilet lid.
The owner of the bar was contacted and he decided he should press charges.
The customer was then arrested for malicious injury to real property.
You know the drill, man
An officer noticed a man driving erratically along Coleman Boulevard and followed the driver. A report said the officer witnessed the driver weaving within his lane and going 55 mph in a 35 mph zone.
He pulled the driver over and asked him where he was coming from. He said he had been at a local bar.
The officer then asked him how much he had to drink. The driver said, “not a whole lot.”
When questioned more the drier said he had been out earlier with his roommate and had two or three beers and was heading home.
The officer asked the man to step out of the car, and he complied. But once standing behind his vehicle, he told the cop, I’m not going to do any field sobriety.”
The officer asked him why not and he said, “you know the drill man. It just doesn’t sound like a good idea.”
However, the driver eventually agreed to perform the alphabet test and was asked to recite it from to D to P. After instruction and demonstration, he said it from D to Z.
The officer began to explain the next set of instructions and the report said the driver said, “Actually, let’s just go to jail.” The officer asked him if he was sure he did not want to move on to a new task and he said, “Let’s just go to jail, bud.”
So off to jail they went. The driver was arrested for DUI.
