The man who stunned the political world by winning the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in South Carolina without campaigning or spending money in 2010 has been arrested on a trespassing charge in Myrtle Beach.
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, and he was then 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.
Greene won the 2010 primary with 59 percent of the vote, stunning political veteran Vic Rawl.
