An officer noticed a vehicle speeding through a construction zone and made a traffic stop just down the road.
It turns out the driver had a New York driver’s license, which had been revoked, and he did not have a South Carolina driver’s license. According to the incident report, the officer noticed “shake” (small pieces of marijuana) on the floorboard and passenger seat of the car.
The driver was then asked to get out of the car. According to the report, the officer asked him if he had smoked pot in the car recently and he said, “Yeah, sometimes me and some friends sit in the car and smoke.”
The officer searched the car but did not find any further contraband. He was issued a ticket for not having a driver’s license and given a court date. He was then allowed to call someone to get a ride home.
