Luck was not on the side of Charleston police last night, as a sobriety checkpoint for The St. Patrick's Day holiday was cut short because of two car chases.
two drivers, not willing to comply with officer commands, thinned out the number of officers, making it too difficult to sustain through the evening...
The first pursuit began just after 9 p.m. when a car pulled up to the checkpoint and the driver was asked if he had been drinking.
The driver, identified as Todd Nelson Miller, 27, of Charleston, submitted a driver's license, but then sped off, nearly hitting several officers and striking numerous traffic cones...
Miller fled across the Southside Bridge with police cruisers following closely behind.
Officers observed Miller tossing several bags out the window of his car ...
Police were able to recover about 20 grams of marijuana ...

It’s Miller time?
The throwing of the green?
Both men were taken to South Central Regional Jail.
There’s a real good chance neither of these guys were actually DUI; one transporting weed and the other with an outstanding warrant.
Probably just driving while stupid.
In before the police blamers.
The checkpoint is there to permit the State to stop anyone at any time. It’s for your own good you know.
LOL!! Mr. Miller is not a mental giant.
Lol, he did leave his license! Sounds like one of those ‘dumb robbery’ kind of stories!
