Hardeeville Police responded to a domestic dispute that reportedly occurred inside of a vehicle on I-95 South where suspect Isaac Stevenson was found to be listed as a wanted person by the Ridgeland Police Department. He was placed under arrest by Hardeeville Officers and transported to the Jasper County Detention Center where Ridgeland Officers served the warrant. Stevenson's charges stemmed from a September 5, 2010 driver safety checkpoint conducted at the intersection of East Main Street and Logan Street where he was cited and assigned a court date for operating without a driver's license. He then failed to appear in Ridgeland Municipal Court to answer to the charge on September 27, 2010 resulting in a warrant being issued for his arrest.
