UPDATE: One charged after morning chase in stolen car ends in Lexington County

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – An early morning car chase that occurred around 6:30 a.m. between a SC State Trooper and a white, stolen Jaguar ended at Augusta Road and I-20 when the car was disabled by the trooper who used a PIT maneuver to spin the fleeing vehicle out. Troopers did arrest the driver who was booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Richland County. The trooper originally tried to stop the stolen car at Clemson Road and I-20, but the driver refused to pull over initiating the pursuit.

The first indication that was given to county units that the trooper was in pursuit was when Lexington County’s Dispatch Center broadcast to all EMS, fire, and police monitoring their channels that the trooper was chasing the car. At times, Lexington County units reported over their radios that the fleeing car was traveling in excess of 100 mph on Augusta Road toward Lexington. Those units can monitor the trooper on their P-25 radio system.

Lance Corporal David Jones, spokesman for Troop 1, said that Jared Cobb is currently in the jail and has been charged with failure to stop for a blue light, reckless driving, and being in possession of the stolen car. He will have a bond hearing soon on all the charges.
