South Carolina Cop Drives Drunk in His Own Patrol Vehicle and then Crashes

A Chester County sheriff’s deputy in Chester, South Carolina has been fired after he was arrested late Thursday night for driving drunk in his patrol car, Chester County Sheriff Max Dorsey said.

In fact the Chester County Sheriff Department’s former sheriff was arrested this year by the FBI.

Evan Hawthorne, 25, of Rock Hill, SC was off-duty when he was involved in the single-vehicle crash at the Chester Park school complex off S.C. 9 in Chester, officials said.

U.S. News reports S.C. Highway Patrol troopers arrested Hawthorne for DUI around 11:15 p.m. Dorsey said he immediately terminated Hawthorne following the deputy’s arrest.

Dorsey says,

“This office has a zero tolerance for driving under the influence, period. The public has to have trust in its officer.”

Hawthorne was released on his own recognizance Friday after being booked into the Chester County jail on the DUI charge.

Hawthorne had started work as a road patrol deputy on May 1, Dorsey said. It was Hawthorne’s second time working with the sheriff’s office.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
