Barry L. Steinberg, 60, was arrested by Richmond County authorities early Sunday after a sheriff’s deputy found him asleep in his car on Skinner Road, near Washington Road. Steinberg, a lawyer and retired accountant, was taken into custody after deputies found he had a warrant for his arrest from an August incident in Columbia County.

According to a Columbia County sheriff’s report, deputies were called Aug. 15 to the Brandon Wilde retirement community on Owens Road after Steinberg became belligerent while visiting his mother. Steinberg had been banned from the property and had been escorted off the premises by deputies in a previous incident, reports state.

Steinberg wasn’t arrested Aug. 15 because he complained of chest pains and was taken by ambulance to University Hospital, the report states.

Richmond County authorities released Steinberg to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Monday. He was freed on bonds totaling $1,100, sheriff’s officials said.

Seriously, he should be checked for senility and dementia. Something is not right with him.

just hope that no one in your family will ever develop a problem. It does not seem proper to make the comment you made. This poor man certainly needs help and hopefully his family will see to it that he will get it. Mental problems are nothing to make fun of.

Remember this people

Leave it to a lawyer to figure out that
Chest pains = "A Pass on Jail" & go directly to the hospital and sometimes then home.
