Alvin Green, who was nominated in 2010 to run as the Democrat nominee to run against Republican Jim DeMint for the US Senate, has been arrested in South Carolina for trespassing.

Green was walking around an apartment building in Myrtle Beach around 12:30 a.m. in a disoriented manner, according to the incident report. Emergency services were called to the scene and he was arrested.

Green lost to DeMint in 2010 but became well-known for the challenge. 

Greene remained at the Horry County jail Monday afternoon, held on a $282 bond. No one answered the phone at his Manning home and his brother did not return a message.

Myrtle Beach Police Capt. David Knipes had no additional information about Greene’s arrest.

WIS reports that Green has faced other legal charges, including a felony charge for allegedly showing pornography to a female student at the University of South Carolina. He entered a pre-trial intervention program to erase the charge. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
