South Carolina sheriff's deputy faces drunk driving charges

Short report on Mount Pleasant cop's DUI arrest is criticized

Police in South Carolina are taking heat in the aftermath of a DUI arrest of a Mount Pleasant police major.

Many Charleston residents who score high on an alcohol breath test think that they have no choice other than to sit back while they are convicted of a DUI charge.
