Marine Wanted in Gang Case Arrested

Beaufort Marine Pvt. Carlos Downing is back in custody this evening. Beaufort County deputies arrested him last night for possession of marijuana.

Downing and three other Marines were arrested in Columbia Sunday night. Richland County deputies say they were helping Crips gang members plan an attack at a high school football game in Irmo, South Carolina.

Investigators released all four with orders to return to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. Downing did not return.

MCAS will process Downing and send him to join the other three in the brig in Charleston.
