Jury problems delay SC Rep. Vick's DUI trial

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina state Rep. Ted Vick's trial on a 2012 drunken driving charge has been delayed because of problems with potential jurors.

Columbia Municipal Court Judge Dana Turner decided Wednesday to postpone the trial after several potential jurors discussed the case in the jury room.

Turner said she worried there wouldn't be enough impartial people to fill out the six-juror panel.

Vick wasn't present. His lawyer, state Rep. Todd Rutherford, said the Chesterfield Democrat was at training for the South Carolina Army National Guard. Rutherford said Vick could have made it to court if he wanted to testify.

Vick's driving under the influence arrest in May 2012 in Columbia derailed his run for a U.S. House seat. Vick was charged with DUI this year in the garage under the Statehouse.
