CHARLESTON, S.C. | The lawyer for a woman whose car was hit by a state senator charged with driving under the influence says the lawmaker should resign if he lied to state troopers.
Michaela Caddin said that after she was rear-ended by Sen. Paul Campbell on Saturday night on Interstate 26 north of Charleston, Campbell’s Mercedes pulled off the highway in front of her and she watched as Campbell got out of the driver’s side, his wife got out of the passenger seat and they switched places.
The senator says he wasn’t driving. Both Campbell and his wife were charged with providing false information.
Attorney Matt Yelverton, who represents Caddin, said Tuesday that the Goose Creek Republican should quit if convicted of lying.
