State Representative Gets Arrested for DUI

State Representative Gets Arrested for DUI

WLTX reported that Ted Vick, who is the District 53rd member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, has been arrested and charged with a DUI. Vick was charged on the grounds of the South Carolina State House just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night. According to the police report, an officer from the Bureau of Protective Services saw Vick tripping and  struggling to keep a balanced posture. The officer even stated that Vick had to brace himself to keep from falling on a wall next to the entrance of the State House garage. The officer continued with his statements by saying that they saw Vick get into his car and tried to drive out even though several officers yelled at him to stop. After a couple of more commands, he finally parked the car. However, Vick refused to take a field sobriety test and resisted arrest by trying to pull away. Once he was taken to jail, he told authorities that he had been at Cowboy Brazilian Stakehouse on Main Street in Columbia where he’d had two glasses of wine, then walked back to the State House garage. It was noted that this was Vick’s second DUI arrest since last year. He was released from jail on a personal recognizance bond. Reporters attempted to question him about the incident but all he said was, “I regret this happened, obviously, but I remain innocent until proven guilty.”
