Darkness to Light chief operating officer charged with DUI

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

The Mount Pleasant Police Department has arrested the chief operating officer for Darkness to Light after officers say he was found drunk in a truck parked at a traffic light.

Investigators charged Matthew Grayson with driving under the influence.

Police responded to US 17 and Houston Northcutt Boulevard early Saturday morning in reference to a driver who appeared to be asleep behind the wheel at a traffic light.

Officers say a 2005 Dodge Ram truck was in the left turn lane on US 17 North positioned to turn onto Mathis Ferry Road.

Investigators say officers could detect an odor of alcohol coming from inside the vehicle. A police report states that an open container of Heineken beer was found in the truck.

According to a police report, an officer had to help Grayson out of the vehicle and place him at a safe location behind the truck.  Authorities reported that Grayson's eyes were glossy, his speech slurred and an odor of alcohol was coming from his breath.

Grayson then agreed to take field sobriety tests. Police say at one point during one of the tests, the officer had to grab Grayson to prevent him from falling.

Grayson was locked up at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
