Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies arrested an 18-year-old man after finding him fully clothed in a pool at a Guion Road, Lugoff, home.

According to a KCSO incident report, a deputy responded to a call that the young man had allegedly vandalized a vehicle at the scene. When he arrived, the deputy found glass on the ground near three vehicles, as well as broken bricks and an uprooted plant. The homeowner said he and his wife were eating dinner when they heard loud noises coming from outside. He said when they went outside, they found the man “squealing like a girl,” on top of one his wife’s car. The man also said he threatened to shoot the subject if he didn’t get down from the car.

At that point, the young man reportedly jumped in the pool. According to the incident report, the subject screamed when he saw the deputy, but complied with the deputy’s commands. The deputy then called the subject’s mother who said she thought her son was at a friend’s house. The mother of one of the young man’s friends came to the scene and told deputies when she arrived home, her son had taken the young man’s keys, forcing him to leave on foot with no shoes on.

Deputies transported the subject to the Kershaw County Detention Center.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Oct. 21-27:

The KCSO is searching for a man impersonating one of their own. An unidentified man driving a blue or black four-door car with red and blue lights and a siren recently tried to pull over a woman on Koon Road in Lugoff. He reportedly sped off when the woman reached for her cell phone to see if he was a legitimate deputy. The woman said she saw the suspect try to pull someone else over, but could not see the driver.

“You ain’t getting my truck today,” a Florence man told a repossessor as they tried to remove his truck. The Florence man reportedly hopped in the truck and drove it off a loading ramp, running over the repossossor’s foot as he drove off.
