A wanted man was arrested Saturday after fleeing police in his car when they tried to stop him for speeding, according to a Rock Hill police report.

Antonio Ross, 24, was driving on Cherry Road at about 9:50 p.m. when a police officer saw his car going 59 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone, the report stated. After stopping Ross, the officer discovered Ross had two active warrants for his arrest: one for criminal domestic violence and the other for damage to property. When the officer went to talk to Ross again, Ross locked his car doors and drove away.

Two police officers followed Ross and he began “driving reckless,” the report stated. He drove quickly, ignoring stop lights and stop signs and nearly caused several accidents. He then drove to his home on Midvale Avenue and got out of his car and tried to get into somebody else’s house, the report states.

The resident of the house told police Ross had run behind the house, and officers were able to find Ross and arrest him.

Ross was served the two warrants and charged with failing to stop for blue lights, reckless driving and speeding.
