An officer reported that on Oct. 20 he observed a white Ford Mustang that was having mechanical trouble exit the parking lot of the Short Stop and proceed east on Bridge Street without its headlights on.

After he stopped the car on Fair Street, the driver, a resident of Reid Street, kept insisting that she needed to urinate and admitted that she had been drinking, the report states. However, the report notes that she refused a sobriety test.

The driver told the officer she didn't have a license with her and gave him a false name, the report states. She initially resisted arrest, and when placed in the patrol car, she urinated on herself after attempting to pull down her pants, according to the incident report.

The suspect was transported to the Law Enforcement Center. Subsequently, the owner of the vehicle she was driving called police to report that his car was missing and noting that it had been taken without permission.

The suspect was charged with operating a vehicle without headlights, open container in a motor vehicle, failure to surrender a S.C. driver's license, giving false information to police and use of vehicle without permission.

In an unrelated report, an officer pulled over a vehicle being driven by a Fort Motte Road man. It was determined the man's license was suspended for cancellation of insurance. He was charged with first-offense driving under suspension and served with an active warrant on another charge.
