(as written: A Rock Hill police report says officers received a call after the man reportedly struck a construction cone in the 600 block of Anderson.
Police say 33-year-old Joshua Matthew Grose had parked his Toyota and was reaching into a beer cooler when they arrived. Officers found open bottles of rum, whiskey and beer. Grose refused to blow into a breathalyzer.
State statues call for a mandatory administrative revocation of a driver’s license if a DUI suspect refuses a breathalyzer test.
But there is no state law that automatically calls for the permanent revocation of a driver’s license after a certain number of DUI convictions.
That is only possible if the suspect is named a habitual offender…a process that is started by the state department of motor vehicles and ends up in the court system.)
