Travis Alston, 34, was taken into custody from his mother's home around 7:30 p.m. after eluding an officer attempting to stop him while speeding on Rutledge Road.
The officer originally noticed Alston driving his 2002 Chevrolet Impala at 82 mph in a 60 mph zone on Highway 17. The officer flashed his lights and turned on sirens, but Alston continued to drive recklessly before eventually coming to a stop at an intersection. Alston then fled on foot to his mother's home, where police met him and handcuffed him.
An incident report filed noted that Alston had been charged for failing to stop at a blue light and also for driving with a license that had previously been suspended. Police believe Alston was under the influence of alcohol during the chase. His car was towed following his arrest.
