A Lancaster, SC man was being arrested for an outstanding warrant when he escaped from a Lancaster, SC Deputy’s patrol car.  This incident reportedly occurred at 1:13 a.m., according to the police report.

The man was riding his bicycle down the road, and looking into businesses in the area.  As the deputies closed in on him, viewing his “suspicious” activity, he rode his bike between the buildings.  Followed closely by police, they decided to stop him.  When the man’s identification card was put through the system, they discovered he had an outstanding family court warrant.

After news of this warrant was heard by the man, the report states that he took off running.  The deputies called for him to cease his escape, but he did not listen.  The man slipped as he approached Airport Road, and deputies were able to apprehend him.
