Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies responded to Shadow Mist Lane in Elgin on Saturday after a resident said horses had damaged her swimming pool. The KCSO report said the woman first called authorities around 1:40 a.m. and said her neighbor’s horses were in her yard. She called again around 10:30 a.m. and said she and her daughter had gone outside to use the pool and found it was collapsed and the water had run out onto the ground. She said she believed the horsed did the damage, at a cost of $300. The report said a deputy took photos of the damaged pool and there were horse hoof tracks around it.

Deputies arrested a motorcyclist who tried to flee from a traffic checkpoint early Saturday. A KCSO report said a checkpoint was set up at Hwy. 12 and White Pond Road when a 27-year-old Elgin man approached, made a U-turn and rode away, going onto I-20 in the westbound lanes and fleeing at high speed. The deputy ended the pursuit in the interest of safety. The report said the deputy saw the motorcycle go from I-20 onto U.S. 1 heading back toward Kershaw County. The deputy followed the motorcycle and found the driver had crashed the bike going too fast around a curve on U.S. 1 near Kelly Road, the report said. He reportedly had minor injuries and was treated by EMS at the scene. He failed a series of field sobriety tests and was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and failure to stop for blue lights. The report said he registered .14 percent blood alcohol content on a breath test at the Kershaw County Detention Center.


The KCSO also reported 12 thefts, eight assaults, seven arrests for possession of marijuana, three cases each of public disorderly conduct, harassment, identity theft, criminal domestic violence, burglary and driving under the influence, two reports each for driving under suspension, unlawful carrying of a weapon, malicious injury to property and threats and one case each of open container, no driver’s license, shoplifting and credit card fraud.

The Camden Police Department reported three cases of harassment, two cases each of threats, malicious injury to property and driving under suspension, one shoplifting involving two suspects, one other theft and one weapons law violation.
