Suspected drunk driving professor apprehended in SC

An associate professor in South Carolina was recently taken into custody for operating a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants, an article of The State reported on December 12.

A Kershaw County officer observed a vehicle driving erratically on a highway in Lugoff on December 8. Authorities later identified the vehicle driver as 52-year-old Ronald David Lamie, an associate professor at the Clemson Sandhills Extension facility. Lamie failed a field sobriety test after an officer detected the smell of alcohol inside his vehicle, which is owned by the state. While in custody, a breathalyzer showed Lamie’s BAC was 0.15 percent. Lamie had to sober up before he was allowed to be discharged on a bond.

Unfortunately, drunk driving is one of the leading causes of fatal vehicular accidents in America. If you were harmed by a DUI offender, an attorney may be able to help you obtain the compensation you need for recovery.
