A Clover man who borrowed his mother's truck to attend an anger management class is accused of using the truck to drive his ex-girlfriend off the road Saturday in Clover, according to police reports.
Brian Underwood, 28, has been charged with reckless driving, damage to property, leaving the scene of an accident and criminal domestic violence, according to police documents. He also was charged with damage to property.
The man's 28-year-old ex-girlfriend called police around noon Saturday and said Underwood was chasing her and a friend while they were driving down S.C. 55 in Clover, according to a York County Sheriff's Office report. The call was then disconnected.
Deputies responded to the area and found the woman and her friend near Cobby Creek Court, hiding at the end of the road, the report states. Deputies noted damage to the driver's side of her Volvo.

She said she and her friend were leaving for Rock Hill to make a payment on the car when they saw Underwood pull out from a grocery store parking lot and follow them, the report states. They eventually turned around on the highway, but he followed them again and pulled into the opposite lane of traffic, driving them into a field off of the road. They managed to drive out of the field and onto the road where deputies met with them.
That same day, Underwood's mother called and said she and her son were arguing over damage he had caused to her truck, the same truck he had been driving when he allegedly hit his ex-girlfriend, reports state.
She requested he be charged with property damage, the report states. She said she let Underwood use the truck to drive to anger management class. When he returned the truck, he hid it in the back so she wouldn't see the damage.
