Columbia, SC (WLTX) — State Representative Ted Vick of Chesterfield County was being held Thursday after he was arrested during a traffic stop.
CPD Spokesperson Jennifer Timmons tells News 19 that after officers stopped Vick for speeding, and upon approaching the vehicle and speaking with Vick, smelled alcohol.
They asked him to take a breathalyzer test, but he refused. He was put into custody under suspicion of D.U.I., and he then told officers he had a gun in his car.
The officers found the gun, but Vick informed them his concealed-carry permit had expired…
Of course, how this affects his campaign is one of his lesser problems at the moment.
