Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Chesterfield County Democrat Rep. Ted Vick left jail Wednesday following a DUI arrest, saying he would let his attorney decide what comments to make on the charge.

News19 met with Vick's attorney, Rep. Todd Rutherford, in the State House parking garage to discuss what happened.
Rutherford has issues with some of the things written in the report, saying Vick did not drive a far enough distance for an office to have seen him display impaired driving.
The Department of Public Safety report says Vick was staggering and had to brace himself on a concrete wall to keep himself from falling.
According to Rutherford, Vick had just walked from a steakhouse on Main Street, and stopped and leaned on a wall to remove a rock from inside his shoe before continuing on to his car.
Rutherford also says Vick's parking space, which is against a wall, requires him to parallel park between two concrete pillars. He says Vick has to maneuver to get his truck out of the space and backed up enough for him to drive up a ramp to exit the parking garage.
He says there is no way Vick would have been able to do that if he was impaired as much as the officer claims.
Rutherford addressed the officer's report of Vick hitting a cone with his bumper. He said the cones are pliable, and hit all the time and show signs of those previous hits.
"There is no way that Mr. Vick had had too much to drink before he got in that car," said Rutherford. "And there is no way that Ted would have driven after all the trouble that he's had and all the drama that he's been through and all the things that he's trying to get done with his life, that he would have driven under the influence of alcohol. He did not last night and we can't wait to have our day in court to prove that."
