Nicholas Keith Scudder, 23, of Daufuskie Road, was charged with discharging a firearm in the city limits and unlawful carrying of a pistol, according to Tonyia McGirt, public information officer for the Sumter Police Department.
Reports indicate the suspect was seen firing a weapon in the air from the driver’s side window of his pickup truck at about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Officers located Scudder’s vehicle in the area and placed him in custody after a traffic stop, McGirt said. A handgun with an extended magazine was found inside the vehicle.
Scudder was booked at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center and later released on a $10,000 surety bond.
McGirt said the incident had no relation with the recent protests.
