Sheriff’s Office

A man was found unresponsive in his vehicle Monday afternoon during a television and internet installation service call, according to a sheriff's office incident report

The man arrived at an Orangeburg home around 2 p.m. to install television and internet service.

The service man returned to his vehicle to await confirmation of some changes that needed to be made after the installation.

The homeowner said when he returned outside, he observed the man slumped inside the vehicle and unresponsive, the report said.

After several unsuccessful attempts to rouse the man, Orangeburg County Emergency Medical Services was called.

The man finally woke up, informing law enforcement he did not remember what transpired.

Officers said they could smell alcohol on him, but were not certain whether beer was spilled or imbibed by the man, according to the report.

The man agreed to be transported to the hospital but declined treatment on his way there, according to the report.

He was dropped off at the John C. Calhoun Drive Walgreens by medical personnel.

Deputies tried to locate the man, but were unsuccessful.

In separate incident, an Orangeburg man said someone stole the rims and tires off of his 2009 Ford Mustang sometime over the weekend.

The man said the vehicle has been at his cousin's shop on Porter Street since November 2017, when the vehicle was damaged in a collision. He last saw the vehicle Friday.

The value of the rims and tires is $1,800.
