Police: Man initially too intoxicated for mugshot hit women, building with truck


CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) –

Clemson police said a Georgia man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence early Wednesday after crashing into a business and striking pedestrians with a pickup truck.

The crash happened around 12:30 a.m. on College Avenue, according to Chief Jimmy Dixon.

Dixon said John Thompson, 34, from Pooler, GA, was driving a white Ford F-350 that crossed all three lanes on College Avenue, went up the sidewalk, and crashed into the front of The Greek Gallery memorabilia store.

Dixon said two women were struck by the vehicle and transported to the hospital but has since been released. A male victim was not transported from the scene, according to police.

Thompson is also accused of striking a car which was legally parked.

He refused to take a breathalyzer and was initially too intoxicated to take a booking photo following his arrest, Dixon said.

“Thompson is not a Clemson University student and is being held at the Clemson City Jail awaiting a bond hearing,” Dixon said. “As the chief I am extremely grateful this incident was no worse than it was.”

Later on Wednesday, police released a mugshot of

An employee at the store told police a female shopper told her Bayate placed his cell phone up her skirt, as well as doing it to other shoppers. Later, Bayate was seen in a verbal argument with another female shopper and got into a physical confrontation with that woman’s boyfriend.

Bayate fled the scene and was eventually caught by officers at a nearby Walgreen’s. The Hollywood resident has prior charges for the same crime in Broward County.

Do Prostitution Arrests Help Women Get Out Of Sex Trade? Trafficking Survivor Says No


Over the past five years, Jacksonville police have made about 1,000 arrests for buying, selling, or soliciting sex. Eight of every 10 arrests involved female offenders — many for second or third offenses.  

Jacksonville police officers said the threat of arrest for prostitution is a deterrent, but other cities are focusing less on jail time.

Jamie Rosseland is one of those people who were arrested. Her second  prostitution arrest was in 2013, at the age of 25.

She remembers the day her mugshot and charge were published in a Jacksonville newsletter called the Victim’s Advocate as part of a column called “Shame, Shame, Shame.”

“It’s really hard to know that’s how people know you is that you’ve been in a publication like that,” she said.

She believes those publications fuel a stigma against women who are arrested for prostitution.

“How could I even know that I was a victim of human trafficking when society has labeled me ‘disgusting; whore; worthless?’ ” Rosseland said.

History Of Abuse
