COLUMBIA, SC. -- Dashcam video shows S.C. Rep. Ted Vick during his second DUI arrest at the State House.

At the start of the video, Vick is shown struggling with an officer Tuesday in a parking garage on the State House grounds. Then an officer takes Vick to the cruiser.

"Brother, take these things off of me," Vick said on the video.

"I wish I could sir," the trooper responded.

"I'm not gonna run anywhere," Vick said. "I'm not gonna beat anybody up, not gonna go anywhere."

The Bureau of Protective Services, which patrols the state capitol, said an officer saw Vick staggering and trying to keep his balance before getting in his car and driving out of the garage.

In the cruiser, Vick continued to speak to the officer, saying "I can't believe I got handcuffs on me in the State House. I hadn't harmed anybody, I hadn't done anything."

At one point, Vick asked about having someone come get him.

"Somebody will come pick me up if you leave my truck right there," Vick said.

"I wish you'd a done that before," the officer responded.

He faces another DUI charge from last May, when he was stopped for speeding in Columbia. That case is still pending.

Vick was released on bond Wednesday. He told reporters he was "innocent until proven guilty." As for claims Vick was staggering, his lawyer told several media outlets that Vick had a rock in his shoe.
