Drunk Driving in the Daytime
While shoppers were flooding the highways on their way to Black Friday deals yesterday, at least one North Augusta man was making the roads a more dangerous place to be, according to authorities.
Antonio Collier, 24, was stopped in the middle of the day Friday and busted for a long list of offenses that begin wit DUI. A trooper with the South Carolina Highway Patrol stopped him in Aiken County just after lunchtime and discovered he was driving drunk.
According to jail records, the trooper also discovered the suspect with illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia and a firearm. Mr. Collier wasn't even supposed to be driving since his license was suspended.
Mr. Collier was quickly booked into the Aiken County Detention Center, where he was unable to provide any more risk to shoppers.
And he was missing some pretty good deals, too.
