Man driving the wrong way leads to drug charges for passenger

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators say a man driving the wrong way in downtown led to drug charges for the passenger.

The Charleston Police Department charged Grant Therin Brown for possession with intent to distribute cocaine base.

On Saturday afternoon, officers stopped a car that was traveling the wrong way on Hanover and Cooper streets. Officers say Brown was seated in the passenger seat and told officers that he did not have any identification on him, but gave police his name and date of birth.

At one point, when one of the officers requested additional units after detecting the odor of marijuana, Brown was seen "moving around a lot" and reaching under his seat.

When one of the officers asked Brown what he was doing, Brown said he was looking for his ID. According to police, the driver of the vehicle said he and Brown had been smoking marijuana.

After an officer asked Brown if he had anything on him, Brown turned around and placed his hands on the car.

Investigators say when an officer shook Brown's pants, a small bag with 1.3 grams of a white rock substance fell out of Brown's pant leg.

A police report states the substance tested positive for cocaine base. The driver of the car was cited for wrong way on a one way street and violation of restrictive license.
