Halloween adds to number of arrests at Westside home
posted November 3, 2008
WESTSIDE – Edgefield
Deputies along with Edgefield and Johnston Police were called to a home
on the 3100 block of West Martintown Road just after midnight Friday
with a report of an uncontrollable fight in progress. Deputies called
for additional back up due to the volatility and the history of parties
held at the location. The home, notorious to law enforcement for large
parties involving young people, has been the site of arrests and
problems in the past.
The reputation of the location was such that deputies calling for back
up did not use the street address, only the name of the owner to have
other law enforcement officers respond.
Though the homeowner stated he did not want to press charges after
police arrived on the scene, at least one man was taken into custody.
One young woman, who
identified herself as Nicole Prater, 21, posed for
a picture (left) on the roadside and said the party, allowed and
attended by her parents, was “nobodies business” in spite of the
numerous police cars parked in the drive and along the highway after
they were summoned to the scene. After her self-posed picture was taken
she said, “Put that on Edgefield Daily”. We obliged her request.
While law enforcement was sorting out the situation Friday night,
others were parking on the roadside to retrieve their children from the
The man arrested was not identified at the scene and his charges were
not available at press time. Complaints to the Sheriff’s Office about
the parties at the home date back several years.
On another occasion last year Sheriff’s Deputies spent several hours at
the home after finding several underage teens at an unsupervised party
that resulted in multiple
arrests and a number of vehicles being towed from the home.
Deputies reported, at the time, the strong odor of marijuana inside the
home in addition to beer and liquor bottles strewn around the yard and
Sheriff Adell Dobey said Sunday that he wanted to wait until he read
the report from the most recent incident, and others, before commenting
for a report. A request for the number of incident reports for the
location is being compiled and should be available by midweek.
