Springdale Police Department Arrests Drunk Driver After Short Pursuit

February 10, 2017

 

Springdale, SC - On February 9, 2017 just after midnight a Springdale officer attempted to stop a speeding vehicle on Wattling Rd. The vehicle was traveling at a speed that was greater than twenty miles over the posted speed limit.

 

Once the officer turned on the blue lights, the vehicle began to speed up and attempted to elude the officer during a short pursuit. The pursuit ended when the vehicle collided with a wooden sign and a tree at the corner of Wilton Rd and Westgate Dr.

 

The 54 year old driver admitted that he was trying to flee from the officer. The officer found that the man appeared to be intoxicated. It was also determined that the man's license was currently suspended from a previous DUI.

 

The man was arrested and charged with DUI, failure to stop for blue lights and additional traffic related charges. The man was transported to Lexington County Detention Center.
