A Summerville man was arrested on Sunday of this week after a traffic stop near Crossroads Store on Mahan Road.
According to a report from the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office, twenty-five-year-old Terry Brett Reed was driging a 2000 model Honda Accord when he was spotted by a deputy on patrol.
The deputy said that he knew Mr. Reed’s license was suspended and initiated a traffic stop. While arresting Reed for driving with a suspended license, another deputy noticed an open container of alcohol inside the Honda. Also, a small amount of marijuana was found inside the vehicle.
A female passenger said that the alcohol wasn’t hers and that she had asked Mr. Reed to drive because “she was too tired.” The female passenger was allowed to leave with a warning.
Reed was booked into the Chattooga County Jail on charges of driving with suspended or revoked license, open container and driving without a valid tag or registration.
