South Carolina State Rep. Ted Vick (D) Arrested for DUI and an Illegal Gun

Huffington Post reports

South Carolina State Rep. Ted Vick (D) was arrested on Wednesday for drunk driving, speeding and illegal possession of a pistol.

Vick, who is running in a crowded field for the Democratic nomination in South Carolina's 7th District, refused a breathalyzer test and was taken to jail. He was released on the DUI and speeding charges on Thursday but is still awaiting bond for the weapons charge.

UPDATE: Spring Valley Patch reports that a 21-year-old female student was in Vick's car at the time of the arrest: "The 21-year-old USC student told Columbia police officers she met Vick at Delaney's Pub in Five Points where they were drinking, according to the report. They left and continued drinking at Jake's Bar. Vick offered the student a ride home when they were both leaving, according to the report."
Why was possession of the gun considered illegal? Was it simply because he was drunk and driving? Or is there more to it, what do you think?

How about the young chick in the car?  I realize the ""service to others, commitment and family" candidate was just giving her a ride, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

And finally, let me mention that he's a Democrat. Normally these family-values hypocrites with guns are Republicans, but as our gun-rights friends keep pointing out, that's not always the case.
What's your opinion?  South Carolina does have its problems politically, doesn't it?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  2. ..........hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha....... Columbia police told WIS-TV’s Jack Kuenzie that Vick also had a 21-year-old college student in the car with him, who is presumably not Vick’s wife Melissa......hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.......

    Got to love you some adultering democrat partiers.......

  3. ..........hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.......Vick was transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center where officers found a Kel-Tec .380 semi-automatic pistol in his pocket, according to the report. Officers said Vick had failed to tell them about the gun. Vick's concealed weapons permit expired in 2007...........hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.......

    Why are all you socialists hidden criminals......

  4. Thomas, I don't think the dividing line is between Democrat and Republican as much as it is between gun owner and non-gun owner. He's one of yours, baby.

    1. Given his behavior, he apparently has a problem with alcohol, among many other problems. That puts him solidly in the idiot class. Show me how we can regulate idiots, and I'll listen.

    2. What, you don't think people with alcohol problems can be identified? The worst cases should lose their gun rights, they're just not safe.

  5. In that he's is a gun owner, sure, the hidden criminal is all democrat baby......

  6. These not so hidden criminals all proudly wearing their Obama colors.......
