    Dad lives part time in Myrtle Beach

    I was talking to my dad the other day, and we got to talking about a recent encounter I had with police. After telling him that I did not produce ID to the officer, he said the SC law requires identification if requested? I have done a little research and found very little supporting this. Can someone local answer this for me? Thanks!

    Why "local" it is established state law for SC CWPermitees. I'll post the citation shortly, after breakfast.

    SC ST SEC 23-31-215 (K)

    If you are CCing and an officer asks you for id, you are required by law to inform AND present your id & Cwp to him. If you are not CCing, there is no requirement to show your cwp.

    I appreciate the replies. My father does not carry a gun. I was asking the question in a general sense.....Is it required to provide id to an officer if asked? Without a gun, and no crime committed. I think you answered it!

    On the subject of carrying a handgun... as usual, an officer must have reasonable articulable suspicion to detain you. Though, remember that carrying a handgun in public, openly or concealed, is generally a crime in SC. LEOs can detain you if they have RAS that you're carrying a handgun in a place or manner that is not exempted by law.

    SC has no "stop and identify" statute, so you have no legal requirement to identify yourself with phsycial ID or vocally if an officer detains you with RAS. From my research, you may detained for as long as it takes the officers to be able to identify you, though.

    In a state that has a "stop and identify" statute (which SC doesn't haev), it is generally a crime to not identify yourself if an officer detains you and asks for your identity. The officer must have had RAS to detain you, though, in the first place.

    Even though, SC is not a "stop and identify state", there are a few SC laws that make it a crime if you do not produce physical identification while performing a licensed activity. These activities include carrying a concealed handgun, driving an automobile on public roads, etc.

    I am not a lawyer and this is the internet...

    That's what I am coming to find. He was telling me that people down there get arrested for vagrancy if they don't have ID and money. I thought it sounded like bs.

    Thanks guys! Much appreciated.

    Not exactly bs.
    You need to check with local laws. The beach may have some anti-vagrancy laws as your dad says.

    No mention of particularly vagrancy (hardly a PC term) but an incredible resource for locals.
