HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Republican State House Representative Tracy Edge was arrested early Thursday morning for driving under suspension.

According to online booking records with J. Reuben Long Detention Center, Edge was booked into the facility at 4:37 a.m. Thursday, and released 44 minutes later.

Records indicate Representative Edge paid all bail costs, but the specific amount was not listed. Edge is charged with driving under suspension, although it is not clear at this time where he was driving to or from.

Edge, who currently represents the North Strand, is on November's ballot to keep his seat in House District 104.

According to Horry County Public Index, Edge has two speeding violations dated August 14, 2012 and May 30, also of this year. It is unclear if these speeding violations contributed to Edge's suspended license.

Political records from the South Carolina Legislature website list Edge as a State House Representative from 1996 until present time. Edge is also noted as serving on the North Myrtle Beach City Council from 1994 - 1996 and as the managing partner of Edge Holdings, LLC and vice president of Burroughs and Chapin Corporation.
