      Florence Police Chief's son arrested

      The son of the Florence Police chief, Anson Shells, has been arrested and charged with Minor in Possession of Alcohol, according to Capt. Michael Nunn with the sheriff's office.

      Florence County deputies responded to a call at a home on Heathway Drive and found Austin Shells, 17, being disorderly.

      Nunn says he was screaming at his parents for his car keys, according to the incident report.

      Deputies asked Shells to calm down and then noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from Shells.

      Shells admitted he had been drinking, Nunn added.

      He is being held at the Florence County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
