5:03 pm
the intersection of old chapin road and beechcreek road. there---they found a 2007 lexus abandoned by its driver after striking a utility pole. they id'd the car as belonging to solicitor myers---who lives almost a mile from that scene. they believe he was trying to make a left turn heading toward his house and lost control. myers was located at his home and taken into custody, charged with dui and taken to the alvin glenn detention center in richland county. taken there--not to the lexington detention center because he is the chief prosecutor for lexington county and has been for 40 years. at the jail, myers' blood alcohol tested at point- zero-nine. this follows a may 2012 traffic stop--also on old chapin road---when a trooper saw the solicitor's car swerving and traveling in the middle of the road. myers explained that he was listening to a south carolina baseball game. when the trooper spotted a cup with scotch in it, myers first suggested it was left behind by then- senator jake knotts, and he admitted having drinks, but said he wouldn't be able to perform some field sobriety tests due to recent surgery. he eventually pleaded to an open

by an officer while attending a conference in 2005 in asheville. in that incident---the officer found an open beer can, which myers said was not his though he admitted he'd been drinking. he pleaded guilty to the north carolina charge of driving while impaired and later admitted making a mistake. a couple of things we've asked the department of public safety to clarify--whether myers has an explanation for the crash last night, how he got home and who reported the accident to the patrol. despite one previous conviction for a dui offense---his new charge would be considered a first offense due to the passage of time. that would make it a misdemeanor. we've been in touch with a state judicial officer who cases. it's not clear yet whether the state will launch an investigation into last night's incident. jack kuenzie wis news ten. the last of the three lexington county deputies injured in a crash last week is now out of the hospital.

5:06 pm
has more work to do to attract support from african-american women. a recent poll shows clinton has a double digit lead over sanders when it comes to support from black women. there are nearly 100- thousand more african- american women than men of voting age, and that demographic, specifically older women are backing clinton. sanders tells me he is working on pulling that support due to several issues black women are facing. "nationally, women earn 79 cents on the dollar compared to men, for african-american women that gap is even wider. i beleive 100 percent for pay equity for women and african american women doing the same job as white man should be earning the same pay end of discussion, i'm going to fight for that. second area in terms of issuess like child care, whicn is not just a women's issue but a family issue, we're going to fight to make sure we have affordable quality child care in this country.so when mom goes to work and dad goes to work they sanders and i also talked about his stance on free college tuition for public
