A foot chase led to an arrest by the Greenwood Police Department of a man wanted in McCormick County.
According to a GPD report, officers were patrolling the area of Grier Street and Holloway Avenue when they observed a Chevrolet Tahoe with no tag light. Officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle as it turned into the driveway of a residence on Grier Street. The driver, later identified as Christavious Devonte Durant, 19, of 658 Grier St., stepped out of the vehicle and faced the officers. He then turned around and began walking toward the front of the vehicle. When officers told him to come back, Durant began to run.
According to the report, Durant jumped a fence and began running through the back yards of homes on Wright Avenue. Officers gave chase, but lost sight of Edwards. While searching the area, officers located Durant in the bushes behind a residence on Wright Avenue. Durant came out of the bushes and was handcuffed without incident.
According to the report, officers ran a check on Durant’s driver’s license. The check revealed that this incident would be Durant’s second offense of driving without a license. The check also revealed that Durant was wanted in McCormick County for auto theft.
Durant was taken to the Greenwood County Detention Center and charged with failure to stop on lawful command and no S.C. driver’s license, second offense.
