The Rock Hill Police Department arrested a drunk man at a locak McDonald’s last Thursday evening.
According to the police report, the 54-year-old Rock Hill resident hit a woman’s car repeatedly while waiting in the drive thru line. The accident occured around 10:15 p.m., on East Main Street near Winthrop University.
When the police arrived on scene, the man stated that he had only had two beers that evening, yet could not walk in a stright line due to ” two knee surgeries and two back surgeries.”
However, the “stright-line test,” was not the only sobriety test the defendant failed that night. Upon arrest, the defendant kicked and screamed as the officers try to place the defendant in the patrol car.
His car was subsequently towed, he license was taken from him, and the man was taken directly to jail.
He was in fact charged with a DUI.
The officers administered a breathalyzer test on the man and found that his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was at 0.09. In the state of South Carolina, if a person is found to have a higher BAC than 0.08, they can be charged with DUI.
