A Rock Hill man police said was wanted for arrest was found Monday - right outside the police station. But he didn’t give himself up without an attempt to flee, police said.
Monday afternoon officers were told by a caller that Samuel Mar’Quavious Wilson Jr., 23, who had outstanding arrest warrants for alleged domestic violence, was sitting outside the police department in a green SUV, a police report shows. An officer approached Wilson who was sitting in the driver seat, asked for identification, then Wilson gave the phony name of Jeremy Stewart, according to the police report.
The officer asked for a birth date and other information, then the man admitted he was Wilson. Asked to get out of the SUV, Wilson then tried to push past the officer as the officer attempted to cuff Wilson, then fled on foot, police said. After a foot chase, the officer caught Wilson and he was taken to the city jail just yards from where he had been sitting.
In addition to the outstanding charge of domestic violence, Wilson now faces charges of giving false information to police and resisting police.
