Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. turned himself in to the Clarendon County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) Wednesday afternoon after learning an arrest warrant had been issued. CCSO deputies then booked Tucker at the Clarendon County Detention Center. A CCSO report listed the charge as "unlawful use or disposal of personal property subject to security interest." A judge later released Tucker on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, according to information taken from VINELink, a website used to track detainees across the country.

The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself.
