A Rock Hill man has fled from Winthrop University police after crashing his vehicle into a flower bed just after midnight. Before the incident, police observed the car swerve in and out of lanes near Cherry Road, and after the officers signaled their blue lights, the driver continued to swerve turning on Lister Street, onto Drake Court, and back onto Lister Street.
The driver continued to speed throughout the streets of Rock Hill, eventually running off the road, colliding with a curb, and demolishing a wood-framed flower bed. The offender was reported to have been slurring his speech with blood-shot eyes; the telltale signs of a drunk driver. Further, when the man was brought to the police station, a penny was found in his mouth, which is typically used to elude a breath-test.
The man is being charged with driving under the influence, failure to stop for a blue light, driving under suspension, and resisting arrest.
