Police in Allentown, South Carolina, arrested a 26-year-old man last Sunday on drunk driving charges, but allegedly the traffic stop quickly escalated to verbal violence. The man was pulled over on suspicion of DUI in downtown Allentown at approximately 3:12 a.m. Allegedly, the man failed to stop at a red traffic signal and his motor vehicle lights were off.
When the arresting officer got closer to the man, he allegedly smelled like alcohol. Police say they also found two alcohol containers in the man's vehicle. Next, officers allege that the man became belligerent and would not submit to a field sobriety test.
