Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) - Kershaw County deputies arrested a man they say was going 107 miles an hour on Interstate 20 while driving drunk.

Officers took 25-year-old Matthew Christopher Temples into custody Friday and charged him with DUI 3rd offense and having open containers of alcohol in his vehicle.
