UPDATE: Monday, 3:45pm
A State Trooper was working an accident in Colleton County on Saturday morning when 2 North Charleston police officers asked if he had any contact with another North Charleston police cruiser, belonging to Nicholas Anthony Lomma. The officers said they didnâ€™t know what was wrong with him, so the Trooper followed the officers to Lommaâ€™s vehicle.
The vehicle was in the middle of the roadway with itsÂ blue lights on. The car was otherwise disabled. Lomma had driven into the ditch, damaging the car.
According to the accident report the accident happened around 1:30am andÂ other North Charleston officers didnâ€™t arrive on scene until 7:30am.
Lomma told the Trooper he swerved to miss a deer.
The State Highway Patrol responded to the accident on Bennett’s Point Road at about 8:00 Saturday morning. He was taken to an area hospital before being booked in the Colleton County Jail.
Lomma posted bond Saturday afternoon.
He declined an interview Sunday.
