State Rep. Mike Pitts is recovering after suffering a heart attack over the weekend.

Pitts was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack Saturday while on a hunting trip in Montana.  Pitts underwent surgery at a hospital in Missoula, Montana. 

He is doing well and expected to make a full recovery.

In a Facebook post, Pitts took a lighthearted approach by posting one photo of him posing beside the deer he'd just killed, and a second photo of him in the hospital, writing: 

"Best bull I've ever taken. 20 minutes post pic I had a heart attack. Surgery and now recovering in Missoula. My newest hunting buddy, Little Grady Holt. Got fussed at for holding a baby but there's no better medicine than baby slobber."

Pitts is a former Greenville Police Officer and has represented District 14 covering Greenwood and Laurens Counties since 2003.
