Placeholder Image
The S.C. Highway Patrol (SCHP) arrested Elgin Town Councilman Larry Risvold in February for driving under the influence (DUI) after a trooper observed him driving on the wrong side of the road when turning right on Blaney Road from U.S. 1. The Chronicle-Independent only recently obtained a SCHP report of the incident after making a S.C. Freedom of Information Act request from the S.C. Department of Public Safety. According to the report, Risvold refused to stand on one leg or walk and turn as part of a field sobriety test, citing a disability.
