A man who police said led officers from York and three other counties on an 85-mph chase in a stolen car drove the car on its rims and crawled into a deputys patrol car when he was finally caught early Sunday.
At about 1:30 a.m., Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police asked York County deputies for help in pursuing a stolen car that had crossed the state line, according to a York County Sheriffs report. Deputies took over the pursuit on Carowinds Boulevard and used stop sticks as the car approached Gold Hill Road.
The black Cadillac Escalade, traveling 55 mph, ran over the stop sticks before entering Interstate 77 southbound, continuing down the highway as deputies followed, the report states.
The car continued past the Sutton Road exit, crossing over several lanes and nearly striking the center wall while travelling up to 85 mph, the report states. Its tires degraded until the car was only driving on the rims.
The chase continued into Chester County and then into Fairfield County, with deputies from both counties joining the pursuit.
Fairfield County deputies followed the car until it pulled onto the right shoulder of the road, the report states.
The driver got out of the car on the passenger side but quickly got back in before stepping out again, appearing confused, deputies said. He was unable to follow directions and later crawled into a Fairfield County patrol vehicle.
Naconda Demario Mcqueen-Robinson, 34, was charged with failure to stop for a blue light.
