South Carolina Police Make Life-Saving DUI Stop – Driver Diagnosed with Brain Tumor
Tamara Hall is in good condition today, but that might not have been the case if it weren’t for a pair of Police officers who pulled her over on suspicion of driving drunk last year. The traffic stop resulted in her being diagnosed with a brain tumor that doctors said, if left unchecked, could have killed her.
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, police responded to U.S. Highway 17 North in Mount Pleasant about a drunk driver.

Upon arrival, the officers stopped a vehicle that was being driven erratically. The driver was swerving and running off the shoulder. Officers initiated a traffic stop suspecting the driver of DUI.
Once the vehicle was stopped, the driver, Tamara Hall, told them she had a nasty headache.
Officers initially believed the woman was driving under the influence, but officers soon discovered Hall was not under drugs or alcohol.
Suspecting that hall was having a medical emergency, the officers transported her to a hospital for evaluation, where she was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, which required immediate surgery.
The Mount Pleasant Police Department shared the woman’s story in a post on their Facebook page, which revealed she recently came down to the station and met with the officers to express her gratitude for likely saving her life.
On February 19, 2023, Ms. Palmer contacted the Mount Pleasant Police Department for a follow-up.
In the post, ‘Hall stated that they located a brain tumor once she was at the hospital.’ Hall said she received treatment at the hospital and ‘immediately underwent an 8-hour procedure.’
Today, officers wrote Hall ‘is doing great’ – and even showed up at the Mount Pleasant Police Department to give her thanks to the officers, whom she now views as saviors.
Now on the mend, Hall credits the quick-thinking officers with saving her life – and recently met with them to share her thanks.

Ms. Palmer feels these officers ‘absolutely saved her life,’ the post continued, identifying the lawmen who pulled Palmer over as a possible intoxicated driver as Patrolman First Class James Aton and Patrolmen First Class Raymond Schoonmaker.
‘Without their quick analysis of the situation,’ the department wrote, ‘the outcome could have ended differently.’
Hall is now doing well and is on the road to recovery, while officers Aton and Schoonmaker are being praised for their actions by residents of Mount Pleasant.
