A Murrells Inlet man who was believed to have been armed with a gun Tuesday afternoon was arrested Wednesday morning.
Deputies attempted to arrest Andrew Tucker Wesley, 19, Tuesday because they had a court order to pick him up. He was able to get away at that time.
Witnesses reported Wesley may possibly have a gun in that incident.
At about 1 a.m. Wednesday, while on patrol, a deputy saw a golf cart being driven without headlights on Highway 17 Business in Murrells Inlet. A traffic stop was made and the deputy saw it was Wesley driving the golf cart.
He was arrested for False Information to a Police Officer and a golf cart violation.
Wesley was transported to the Georgetown County Detention Center where he is awaiting a bond hearing and to be transported on the probate order.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
