"it did so in terms of going solidly for barack obama, president obama in 2008 and again in 2012. it did so in terms of selecting john kerry in 2004. there's a pattern. when you look at the turnout in orangeburg county as compared to the other counties across the state we have one of the highest

4:08 pm
night. jack kuenzie reports myers is accused of driving under the influence after wrecking his car dawndy---the charge against solicitor myers is driving under the influence. it comes after the highway patrol found his 2007 lexus had run into a utility pole roughly a mile from his house on mooring lane north of downtown lexington last night. he was later arrested at his home. the discovery of the car happened around 8:00 pm---it was found abandoned at old chapin road and beech creek road. within the next few hours, myers had been booked into the alvin glenn detention center for dui. at the jail, the department of public safety says, myers took a datamaster blood alcohol test and registered a point- 09---slightly above the legal standard for intoxication. myers has a history of alcohol-related driving offenses. in april 2005 while attending a conference in asheville north carolina, an offcer stopped myers' lexington county car and charged him with driving while impaired.
4:09 pm
that night, and there was an open beer can in his car. but he said he didn't know who left it there and was driving because he needed to get food for his wife--who suffered from crohn's disease. myers later pleaded guilty---and got a year's probation and $400 dollars in fines and court costs. in may 2012---a patrol officer stopped him for weaving on old chapin road in lexington county. he later pleaded guilty to having an open container and paid a $155 dollar fine. the latest incident raises new questions---about how myers got home, how the patrol found the car and how this might affect his future. legal experts tell me that despite the 2005 case---this new incident, if it leads to a conviction---would still be viewed as a first offense dui because more than ten years have passed since the asheville arrest. dui 1st is considered a misdemeanor. jack kuenzie wis news ten. the last of the three lexington county deputies injured in a crash last week is now out of

hospital. that news coming from the lexington county sheriff's department this morning. the crash happened last wednesday. investigators say two patrol cars were responding to a burglary in progress when they collided. exactly how the cruisers hit each other is still under investigation by highway patrol. governor nikki haley is standing firm against president obama's plan to shut down the guantanamo bay prison and bring the terrorists there into america. today the president announced he is sending congress a plan to close gitmo and transfer dozens of the terrorists to facilities in the u.s., possibly including the navy brig in charleston. governor haley has already declared she opposes bringing terrorists to south carolina and today she took to twitter saying, "we have made our stance very clear: we will fight any attempt by president obama to bring terrorists into our states." the president's plan comes seven years after he vowed to shutdown the facility during his first year in office. andrew spencer has the latest. 1:10-1:12
4:11 pm
"for many years, it's been clear that the detention facility at guantanamo bay does not advance our national security. it undermines it." president obama is calling for the closure of the guantanamo bay detention facility. the long awaited plan was delivered to congress tuesday morning. "keeping this facility open is contrary to our values. it undermines our standing in the world. it is viewed as a stain on our broader record of upholding the highest standards of rule of law." the blueprint involves transferring most of the detainees to other countries. the rest -- deemed too dangerous to be moved abroad -- would be relocated to a detention facility in the united states. the plan identifies 13 possible u-s transfer sites -- including a military prison in leavenworth and the federal supermax prison in florence, colorado. bernie sanders offered up his support for the plan -- releasing a statement saying: "i am encouraged to see that the president is
4:12 pm
down the guantanamo bay prison. as i have said for years, the prison at guantanamo must be closed as quickly as possible" but reactions from other presidential candidates have not been so positive: presidential candidate "we're not going to close guantanamo." presidential candidate "don't shut down gitmo, expand it and let's have some new terrorists there." before any transfers to u-s soil could take place, legal obstacles would likely need to be overcome. administration officials say they are planning conversations with lawmakers, but the outcome remains hazy. i'm andrew spencer reporting. the air force colonel in charge of the 20th fighter wing at shaw air force base has removed his second-in-command colonel william jones. a shaw representative says colonel stephen jost took action after a loss of confidence in jones. jones has been reassigned to the headquarters of the ninth air force at shaw. that wet weather could be on the verge of getting rough. your forecast is coming up on wis news 10 at four. also: richland county's newest courthouse and home for the

my thinking is the best chance for severe weather is during the time the warm front develops. there will be plenty of moisture along with strong winds in the upper atmosphere that will be the right ingredients for the development of severe thunderstorms. the likelihood of tornado development is high with the best time frame between 5am 2pm this has the potential to be a life threatening event. it's important to pay close attention to the forecast the next 36 hours. once the system moves out by wednesday evening, skies clear
