* Jimmy Dewayne Peoples, of Lake Wanda Reita Road, in Summerville, was arrested for drinking alcohol in J.R. “Dick” Dowdy Park around 7 p.m. on Thursday.
“I was dispatched to Dowdy Park in reference to subjects drinking alcohol under the pavilion. Upon contact, I spoke to several individuals including Jimmy Peoples. No one admitted to drinking alcohol in the park. I checked the area around the individuals and observed Bud Light cans and small wine containers in the trash can near the pavilion. I asked again and Mr. Peoples advised that he had drank earlier,” Summerville Policeman Jo Stricklin reported.
Cops were called to the store after someone called 911 and said, “Please help” and then immediately hung up the telephone.
A store employee told officer Stricklin that Sellers was intoxicated and causing a disturbance inside the store. Seller was jailed for public intoxication.
