Shell casing falls from rear end of man stripped searched at detention center
It may have felt like routine police work Wednesday when officers confiscated loaded guns — two of them stolen — and some marijuana at a North Charleston residence.
But surprises do occasionally pop up ... or out for officers. While one of the three men police arrested was being strip-searched by jailers, a spent brass .380 shell casing fell out of the 25-year-old suspect Nathaniel Whack Jr.’s anus, a North Charleston police report said.
Police responded about 11:30 p.m. to an area near Madden Drive concerning shots fired. Six people were fighting in the road, and some men were trying to take a handgun from one man, the report said.
As police arrived, two cars sped off, and were stopped at Accabee Road and Ferrara Drive. Occupants of both cars told officers they’d been shot at, the report said.
In a car near the Madden Drive area, the report said, police found 15 grams of marijuana and a digital scale. The report said police then went to a home and detained Whack and Pierre Pete. Police found three handguns. One, a loaded Taurus Model PT 738 .380-caliber gun, was reported stolen from Mount Pleasant, and a .40-caliber Glock was stolen from a Richland County Sheriff’s Office deputy, the report said.
Takasha Pete, 25, of Madden Drive is charged with two counts of possession of a stolen pistol. Whack, of Stratton Drive, and Pierre Pete, 21, of Madelyn Street, both are charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Pete also was charged with possession of a stolen pistol, police said.
