Intoxicated Driver Arrested for Parking in What He Thought Was his Driveway

web posted July 23, 2014

MERRIWETHER A Murphy Village man was arrested early Monday morning after his grey Toyota truck was reported blocking both lanes of traffic on Stevens Road at the intersection of Shortcut Road. When an Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputy arrived on the scene the driver, Ronald Lee Duplisea Jr., 50, was found sleeping in the driver's seat.

The deputy woke the driver and asked what he was doing and Duplisea responded he was "taking a nap". When asked if he knew where he was he responded that he was parked in his driveway. The deputy informed Duplisea he was parked in the roadway causing him to look around and state, "I guess I'm not at home," according to an incident report.

When the deputy asked Duplisea how much he had to drink he reportedly said, "probably too much."

A South Carolina Highway Patrolman arrived on the scene and had the driver perform a battery of sobriety tests, which were all failed. At that time Duplisea was taken into custody and book on a charge of DUI. His truck was towed from the scene.
