North Charleston police officer wrecked cruiser, arrested on DUI charges

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 didn’t know what was wrong with him, so the Trooper followed the officers to Lomma’s vehicle.

The vehicle was in the middle of the roadway with its 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 and other North Charleston officers didn’t arrive on scene until 7:30am.

Lomma told the Trooper he swerved to miss a deer.
