Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies arrested two Liberty Hill men on various charges Sunday, including resisting arrest and assaulting police officers.

According to a KCSO report, a deputy stopped a vehicle which had crossed the center line on Stonesboro Road as it approached him. He made the traffic stop on John G. Richards Road near the Liberty Hill Post Office. The deputy asked the driver and passengers for identification and Randolph Douglas Williams, 24, a backseat passenger, handed him a driver’s license that had a partially burned marijuana cigarette stuck to it, according to the report.

The deputy called additional deputies to the scene and, according to the report, said Williams was upset and got out of the car to confront the deputy. Williams got back into the car and refused to get back out when he was told he was being arrested. Deputies struggled with Williams and deployed a Taser to subdue him. Another man, Richard Keith Williams, 50, also struggled with a deputy. Deputies arrested him, too, after they found a small amount of marijuana in his pocket, according to the report. Deputies also found a pistol in the car, but determined it to be legally owned and carried by the driver, deputies reported.

The report also mentioned the reporting deputy wore one of the KCSO’s new body cameras throughout the incident.

The KCSO also reported seven thefts, five arrests for public disorderly conduct, five reports of assault, five for breach of peace, four burglaries, three cases each of criminal domestic violence and driving under the influence, two vandalisms, two arrests for possession of marijuana and two open container violations and one report each of malicious injury to property, harassment, driving under suspension – third offense, unlawfully carrying a pistol and defrauding a motel.

Camden Police Department (CPD) officers arrested a Camden man Friday after he was found with a truck stolen from the Kershaw County Parks and Recreation Department.

According to a CPD report, officers found Tillman James Davis III, 32, of Duell Street, rummaging through the truck at a Goodale Avenue business. He reportedly told officers he had been a passenger in the truck with another man driving and was looking for some money he claimed he had left in the truck.

Officers contacted the recreation department employee who drives the truck. He reportedly said he had parked the truck in a fenced area at the recreation department the previous day. The employee went to the scene and said several items inside the truck, including a cooler, an adult magazine and beer can had not been in the truck when he parked it Thursday.

In a separate incident, CPD officers responded to a call Thursday from a resident who said his new riding lawnmower -- purchased only two days earlier -- had been stolen. According to a CPD report, the victim told officers the machine had been parked with the key in the ignition in a covered storage area beneath the residence. Officers reportedly found footprints and tire tracks leading away from the victim’s home and photographed them as evidence. The mower was valued at $2,095, according to the report.

The CPD also reported two burglaries, two thefts, two cases of criminal domestic violence and one incident each of breach of trust, driving under the influence and vandalism.
