DUI suspect answers nature's call -- in police trash can


Ryan Poe



When nature called Monday, O''Dell Stevenson Carter Jr. answered it -- in the trash can of the room where police were testing him for drunken driving. 


Carter, of 114 Gaylane Drive, was pulled over for drunken driving at about 10:30 p.m. Monday and was taken to the Columbus Municipal Complex for a blood-alcohol content level test. 


The defendant first garnered the community''s attention in 2010, when he allegedly chased a woman from her Alabama Street home with a sword during a burglary. 


This year, he was arrested in March for allegedly stealing his mother''s credit card and her two diamond rings.
