Police: DUI suspect barricaded self in home

A suspected drunk driver barricaded herself in her home after crashing her vehicle into a utility pole on Banks Street in Fort Mill, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

Police responded to the accident scene around 9:30 p.m. May 28 to investigate the wrecked 2005 Ford Escape. The driver, identified as 34-year-old Brooke Renee Calcut of Fort Mill, allegedly had fled the scene, but was located nearby in a residence where she had barricaded herself into a bedroom, the report states. When police tried to confront her, Calcut allegedly threw an ashtray, vase and curtain rod at police, the report states.

Police took Calcut for medical treatment because of her erratic behavior, officers reported. At a hospital, Calcut was unruly and resistant to medical tests, the report states, but she eventually provided a blood sample and admitted to drinking six beers before driving. Police charged her with driving under the influence.

Fort Mill home burglarized

A Fort Mill family is missing more than $4,000 in electronics and jewelry after their home was burglarized, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

The report states the home off White Bridge Lane was unoccupied Friday night and Saturday night. When the occupants returned Sunday morning they realized someone had stolen four laptop computers, two X-Box game systems and some jewelry. The items are valued at $4,200.

Police could not find any signs of forced entry and all keys and garage door openers were accounted for. But one of the residents, a teenager, learned from a friend that an 18-year-old acquaintance may be involved, the report states. Police listed the person as a suspect and are investigating.

Golf cart marauders sought

Three men are suspected of riding on a golf cart while intoxicated and crashing into a parked van in Tega Cay, according to a Tega Cay Police report.

The incident happened at the Tega Cay Golf Club around 9 p.m. May 18. Police say three men were seen driving a camouflage-painted golf cart recklessly around the parking lot and crashing into a parked van, causing $1,200 in damage. Witnesses said the men were drunk. Police could not find the men, who were identified by witnesses by first names only.

Police reports of all felonies and any major misdemeanors are compiled weekly from local law enforcement agency records. Charges do not necessarily result in a conviction, and people who are arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
