Ambulance Driver Arrested on Outstanding Warrant

web posted July 8, 2014

JOHNSTON The driver of an EMS unit owned by Capitol City Ambulance of North Augusta was arrested in Johnston following a traffic stop on July 2, around 9:30 pm. The Johnston Police Officer stopped the EMS unit for an unknown traffic violation and requested the usual license, registration and insurance information. Upon running the driver's information it was found he was wanted out of Aiken County and was arrested.

The driver, identified as 20-year-old James Carl Smith, of Merriwether, was taken into custody for a Family Court bench warrant for delinquent child support. He was searched at the time of arrest and then transported to the Edgefield County Detention Center for booking and held for Aiken County authorities for transfer.

The "EMS van" was then parked at the town's municipal parking lot and locked for the owners to retrieve the vehicle rather than towing it from the scene, an incident report released on Monday stated.

A number of calls requesting a booking photo went unanswered Monday night.
