Former SC Dem Senate candidate Alvin Greene arrested


Remember Alvin Greene? The unemployed Army veteran South Carolina Democrats elected to face off against then-Sen. Jim DeMint in 2010...? He wound up losing that race by more than 30 percentage points and bounced back with a bizarre "campaign" for president.

Well, he's back in the news today.  According to the Associated Press, the former candidate for U.S. Senate was picked up by police over the weekend on trespassing charges:

Police said 35-year-old Alvin Greene was arrested Friday at an apartment complex. A report says he was walking around disoriented and asked for paramedics. They checked on Greene, who then was taken into custody.

Greene remained at the Horry County jail Monday afternoon, held on a $282 bond. No one answered the phone at his Manning home and his brother did not return a message.

Myrtle Beach Police Capt. David Knipes had no additional information about Greene's arrest.
