Local Pottery Expert Arrested

web posted April 11, 2012

EDGEFIELD – Local Old Edgefield Pottery expert Stephen Ferrell is known for many things, being featured on television shows, magazines, newspapers, and keeping the tradition of Edgefield Pottery alive for visitors to purchase. The one thing Ferrell was not known for was getting arrested. That changed on Monday evening.

According to two separate incident reports, Ferrell went to the local Dollar General on Augusta Road to purchase Tylenol and ended up in a verbal disputed with the clerk at the store. In the first complaint, filed around 3:30 Monday afternoon, Ferrell said he was "racially discriminated" against because the clerk was black and he is white and wanted a report on file.

The Sheriff's deputy took the report and then spoke to the clerk and the manager who stated that Ferrell came into the store and tried to walk behind the counter and was told that the area was off limits to customers and Ferrell became angry.

The deputy thought that was the end of the matter. However, around 8:19 pm Ferrell was back at the store causing another disturbance and cussing employees and taking pictures. A deputy and an Edgefield Police Officer arrived at the store and found Ferrell walking away from the store.

After obtaining information from the store employees Ferrell was arrested for disorderly conduct and booked into custody. He was later released on bond for the misdemeanor charge. According to the second report, the store manager also had Mr. Ferrell placed on a trespass notice from the store and he was informed he would be arrested again if he returned.
