Man Awakened, then Arrested

Sheriff’s Corporal Brent Rushing was dispatched to an apartment on Old Laurens Road, Gray Court on a complaint of loud music coming from a car in the parking lot. The officer arrived to find a 32-year old man sleeping in the driver’s seat of a black vehicle. A car door was open and loud music could be heard from the vehicle. On approaching the vehicle, two open beer cans were reportedly observed. Corporal Rushing tried several times to wake the sleeping man, during which he turned the ignition switch of the vehicle off. Once the man was out of the car, the officer reported he still had trouble getting the man to comply with instructions. A taser was reportedly used twice before the subject complied. He was arrested on charges of Breach of Peace and Disorderly Conduct.
