On Saturday shortly before 4 a.m. a Charleston County Sheriff's deputy arrested Herbert Fielding for allegedly drinking and driving.
 
Charleston County Sheriff's Office confirms it is the same Herbert Fielding who ran for South Carolina Senate Seat 42 but lost in the primary runoff.
 
The Sheriff's Office said his vehicle on Poston Road off of Sam Rittenberg Blvd, was traveling under the posted speed limit and had crossed the traffic lane lines.  
 
After approaching the vehicle, deputies said, Fielding had an odor of alcohol on him, his speech was slurred and eyes glassy.
 
The police report says Fielding claimed to have had one vodka drink and nothing more, but the deputy reported Fielding failed a series of field sobriety tasks and was charged with Driving Under the Influence 1st Offense and transported to the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center where he was offered a Breathalyzer test which was refused.
 
Fielding is lodged at the detention center waiting for a bond hearing.
