Video shows Vick asks for driver after DUI arrest
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — State Rep. Ted Vick told an officer arresting him for driving under the influence that he was not intoxicated and couldn't believe he was being put in handcuffs in the Statehouse garage.
The Department of Public Safety released about an hour of video from the garage and the cruiser of the officer who arrested the Chesterfield Democrat on Tuesday night.
In the video, Vick asks if he can be released if someone comes along and picks him up. When the officer asks him to take a sobriety test, Vick refuses, saying he is not intoxicated. He also refused to answer when the officer asks him on a scale of zero to 10 how drunk he thinks he is.
Vick's lawyer says he will fight the charge.
