Police Stop Man on Go-Cart, Arrests Him On Drug Charges

UNION, S.C. - A go-cart wasn't much of a getaway vehicle for a South Carolina man. The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported that sheriff's deputies have arrested 29-year-old Edward Matthew Sweezy of Union after they stopped him last week at an intersection in Union.

The deputy had heard a report of a stolen go-cart and turned on his lights and siren after spotting it less than a half mile from Sweezy's home.

Sweezy is charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and public drunkenness.

The deputy's report says the men struggled and the officer spotted a crack pipe and a bottle with three pills inside.

The sheriff's report said they turned the go-cart over to Sweezy's wife.

It was unclear if Sweezy had hired an attorney.
