v.

Mary R. Hughes, Appellant.


Appeal From Union County
 John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-446
Submitted October 1, 2010 – Filed October 14, 2010   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin Scott Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Mary R. Hughes appeals her conviction for resisting arrest.  On appeal, Hughes argues the trial court erred in refusing to grant her directed verdict motion because the police lacked authority to arrest her without a warrant.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel's brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

FEW, C.J., HUFF and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
