Another Drug Bust
Driving under infulence of alcohol is dangerous and can get you in trouble, especially if you’re stopped by sheriff’s deputies and they find drugs on you.
Marshall Christopher Upton, 34, 149 Clark Circle, Spartanburg, is charged by the sheriff’s office with driving under the influence and possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance.
The incident report states shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday a deputy observed a white Chevy Tahoe traveling on Lockhart Drive. As he followed the vehicle, the deputy saw it cross the center portion of the road several times. A traffic stop was made and the report states while questioning the driver — identified as Upton — the deputy noticed a strong odor of alcohol about Upton and the vehicle. The report states Upton also appeared very nervous, shaking and refusing to make eye contact.
The deputy asked Upton to step out of the car and asked for permission to search the vehicle. Upton got out of the car and gave the deputy permission to do the search. While the deputy searched the vehicle, another deputy gave Upton a sobriety test.
The search turned up an unmarked prescription pill bottle containing two pills believed to be Alprazolam 1MG and 2MG, both of which the report states are Shedule IV narcotics. The report states the other deputy reported Upton failed the sobriety test.
A state trooper was then called to the scene and conducted a sobriety test and then placed Upton under arrest for driving under the influence. After arriving at the jail, the report states Upton refused to take a breathalyzer test.
The pills found in Upton’s car were taken into evidence and his car towed away. A small puppy deputies found in the vehicle was taken to the Union County Animal Shelter for safekeeping.
An apparently homeless woman stranded in Union County got some help on her way to Columbia from the sheriff’s office Friday afternoon.
The incident report states a deputy was dispatched to Monarch Fire Department on Lockhart Highway where the woman had been dropped off. The deputy spoke to the woman who said she got her mail at an address in Chester but could not stay there. She said she had accepted a ride with a couple coming from church under the impression they were going toward Columbia. The woman said she was trying to get to a shelter in Columbia where she had stayed before but had been let out in Union County.
After running the woman’s name and date of birth with no results reported, the report states the deputy drove the woman to the Newberry County line. A Newberry County Sheriff’s deputy then took her to transport her towards Columbia.
