ROCK HILL — Police spent a couple of hours Thursday morning searching for two men who, after running a stop sign, speeding away from police and hitting a parked car, fled on foot.
Sometime this morning, a white Cadillac carrying three men ran a stop sign in the area around Friedheim Road, said Rock Hill Police Executive Officer Mark Bollinger. When an officer tried to perform a traffic stop, the car sped away.
Eventually, the speeding car hit a parked car on Orr Drive and two men inside ran, Bollinger said. One of the passengers stayed behind and was detained.
Eldon Butterfield, 27, has been charged with open container, police say.
Police set up a perimeter in the area that expanded around Heckle Boulevard and Crawford Road while a K9 unit searched for the other two men.
The dogs eventually lost the track, but police are still searching for the two men, Bollinger said. By Thursday afternoon, police presence in the area had cleared out.
