Former Senate candidate Alvin Greene arrested

Police said Alvin Greene was arrested Friday for trespassing at an apartment complex. He was found wandering around looking “disoriented,” according to reports, and paramedics were called to the scene.

Greene remained in jail as of Monday.

In a stunning upset, Greene edged out former state lawmaker Vic Rawl in the Democratic primary despite spending no money on his own campaign. He lost the general election to DeMint by a large margin.

This not the first time Greene has had a run-in with law enforcement. In 2010, Greene was indicted on felony charges of allegedly showing pornography to a female University of South Carolina student.
