Former County Attorney John F. "Buzzy" Byrd Arrested for DUI


web posted November 2, 2012

NORTH AUGUSTA – Edgefield County's former County Attorney John F. "Buzzy" Byrd Jr., 71, appears to have been buzzing while driving in North Augusta Halloween night when he was stopped by North Augusta Police around 8:12 pm. After refusing field sobriety tests Byrd was arrested and transported to the Aiken County Detention Center (ACDC) and booked into custody.

According to the ACDC, Byrd was charged with driving under the Influence, with a blood alcohol level of .10 but less than .16, 1st offense. He was released on a cash bond of $1,229.50 on Thursday morning during a bond hearing. No court date was available.

Mr. Byrd served as the County Attorney for 11 years between January of 1998 until he resigned the position in April of 2009, but remained in the position until June when his replacement, attorney Michael Medlock, was picked to take over the duties. He remains in practice at his law firm in Edgefield.

An incident report on the arrest was unable to be obtained by press time.
