The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A deputy responded to General Dennis Drive where a male subject was slumped over and appeared to be asleep in a vehicle in the late afternoon. The deputy knocked on the window but was unable to awaken the subject.
The deputy opened the driver’s side door and noticed an odor of alcohol. The deputy reached into the vehicle, put it in park and turned off the engine. The subject then woke up and was placed in handcuffs. He was taken to the detention center and charged with disorderly conduct.
• A Hartsville man reported that his 2006 Chevy Trailblazer was recently stolen from a Harbour Lake Drive address. The rear passenger side tire is a spare with a whitewall and the other three tires are black. The vehicle, valued at $7,000, was placed into NCIC.
• A Ladson man reported that vandals entered his yard and shattered a side window to his Marquette Lane residence. The unknown subjects had been jumping the fence to the backyard. A pile of bricks was found lying outside the residence under the shattered window.
• Police responded to a Brockman Way at 1:30 on a recent morning and found a subject breaking the front glass window of a residence. The subject was bleeding from lacerations on his hands and was instructed to put his hands where the officer could see them, which he refused to do.
The officer said if he did not comply he would use his Taser. The subject soon complied and was placed in handcuffs. The subject, who appeared extremely intoxicated, said he broke the windows because he wanted to speak to the complainant, who told officers she had broken up with the subject and did not want to speak to him. She did however say she wishes to press charges.
She said the subject does not reside with her. He had been beating on the window, which broke at about the time officers responded. The subject was checked by EMS then taken to the detention center and charged with malicious damage to personal property.
