A University of South Carolina student accused of hitting a parked car outside Five Points early Friday has been arrested.
Bailey Reed Bowers, 19, is charged her with hit and run, possession of marijuana, possession of another controlled substance, possession of beer by a minor, driving with an open container of alcohol and failure to yield to right-of-way.
She’s accused of hitting an occupied car parked on the side of the street on Greene Street about a block away from USC’s campus.
No one was injured, but witnesses at the scene gave police a description of the suspect car and its direction of travel.
Police stopped Bowers, listed as a business major in the university directory, on Blossom Street near USC’s Greek Village a few minutes later. They found marijuana, alcohol and psychedelic mushrooms in her car. Bowers was booked at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
