Judge rules Sen. Paul Campbell’s DUI case will move forward without breath test

CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) — Colleton County Magistrate Judge Elbert O. Duffie, III ruled January 23 that Senator Paul Campebell’s driving under the influence case will move forward.

Campbell’s attorney, Andy Savage, had filed a motion for dismissal. He argued the case in a hearing last week.

However, the judge did rule that Campbell’s breath test would be dismissed as evidence. He ruled that the state trooper failed to assist Campbell with a blood test that he requested.

Campbell was charged with DUI and lying to authorities November after a collision on I-26 in Charleston County.
