ROCK HILL — Police in Rock Hill arrested a 28-year-old man with three previous arrests for selling crack cocaine on attempted murder, drug and weapons charges this morning after another man at a Rock Hill motel told police he was shot at after buying crack cocaine, according to police and arrest reports.
Debrodrick Degerald Cousar, who gave police a room at the Quality Inn on North Cherry Road near Interstate 77 as his residence, was found in the room late Wednesday after the victim had flagged down an officer around 10 p.m. Cousar, who was charged with selling crack twice in 2007 and again last year, allegedly followed the victim from the Quality Inn where the drug deal took place back to the Rock Hill Motel on Riverview Road where the victim was staying, reports state.
The victim, a 52-year-old Rock Hill man, admitted that he “purchased something he shouldn’t have” and after returning to his motel room was accosted by Cousar, according to reports.
Cousar allegedly fired through the window, causing the victim to be injured by flying glass.
When police located Cousar, a woman with him was also charged with distribution of crack after allegedly being involved in the earlier sale. Marijuana was also found, police said.
Cousar is now charged with attempted murder, discharging a weapon into a dwelling, possession of a firearm during a violent crime, and drug charges.
