      Pizza delivery driver crashes, officers find marijuana inside car

      Kevin Arch

      SOUTH CONGAREE (WACH) - A pizza delivery driver was arrested after crashing his car in South Congaree.

      South Congaree Police said on Saturday night Kevin Arch drove his vehicle down a nearly eight foot hill and ran over trees.

      According to officers Arch said he was delivering pizzas for Dominoes and that his car was "sucked off the road due to his vehicle being out of alignment."

      According to reports a witness told officers Arch was driving all over the road and in the wrong lane for a period of time before darting to the left and leaving the road.

      Once the car was pulled back onto the roadway officers saw marijuana through the passenger window.

      Arch denied using the drug and gave officers permission to search the car.

      Inside the vehicle officers said they found a jar of green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, six bags containing the substance and several empty cigars they believe were used to smoke marijuana.

      Arch was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and reckless driving.
