Reports indicate the suspect was seen firing a weapon in the air from the driver’s side window of his pickup truck at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
Officers located Scudder’s vehicle in the area and placed him in custody after a traffic stop. A handgun with an extended magazine was found inside the vehicle.
Scudder was booked at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center and later released on a $10,000 surety bond.
