Irmo charges teen after pursuit that killed three in April

Irmo, SC (Paul Kirby) The Irmo Police Department announced Tuesday that they had arrested Renas Davis, 18, and charged him with three counts of Failure to Stop for blue lights resulting in death, one count of Failure to stop for blue lights resulting in great bodily harm, one count of Child Endangerment, and one count of Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle valued under $10,000. This arrest stems from a pursuit that occurred in Irmo on April 4 when Davis fled from officers and then collided with a tree. That crash caused three young people to lose their lives and put three others including Renas Davis in the hospital.Investigators were able to link Renas Davis as the driver of the vehicle through DNA testing.

According to officers with the IPD, Renas Davis was located today at his residence and taken into custody without incident.He was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center where he will await a bond hearing. These charges will be sent to the Lexington County Solicitor’s Office for prosecution.

Investigators are still working through evidence to help put all the pieces together on what led up to the pursuit and how this unfortunate incident transpired. “A tremendous amount of sadness was brought upon these families and our tight community through his reckless behavior. We appreciated and are thankful for the assistance of the South Carolina Highway Patrol’s MAIT Team and SLED’s Forensics Lab for helping our investigators determine who was driving the vehicle,” said Captain Courtney Dennis.
