COLUMBIA — State Rep. Ted Vick’s jury trial for his second Columbia arrest for driving under the influence was postponed Monday.
The Chesterfield Democrat’s jury trial was scheduled for Monday morning, but Vick’s lawyer, state Rep. and House Minority Leader Todd Rutherford, D-Richland, had a conflicting engagement and asked for a continuance, Rutherford said.
It is unclear when the trial will be rescheduled.
Vick was arrested May 14 after a state Bureau of Protective Services officer saw him stumbling in the State House parking garage before getting into his truck and running into a traffic cone.
Vick was arrested last year for driving under the influence in Five Points. At the time, Vick was running for the new 7th District congressional seat, but withdrew from that race after his arrest.
That case still is pending, and no hearings are scheduled, Rutherford said.
