Man assaults deputy, flees

  • Monday, July 15, 2013

 A deputy was assaulted after struggling with a Moncks Corner man he pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. on July 6.
A Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw a silver Cadillac leave the parking lot of a 24-hour diner off U.S. 52 near Moncks Corner and soon pulled him over because the driver had no tail lights on, according to a BCSO incident report.
The driver, a 20-year-old Moncks Corner resident, did not have a driver’s license, he told the officer. The suspect was asked to exit and place his hands on the roof of the vehicle.
As the deputy was taking the suspect’s hands behind his back, the suspect elbowed the deputy in the face then turned around and pushed the deputy, according to the report.
The deputy grabbed the suspect by the shirt and began wrestling with him. The suspect freed himself from both of the shirts he was wearing and ran toward the woods behind the parking lot, according to the report.
The deputy called for backup. The passenger was detained and gave the deputy the name of the driver before being released. A tow truck arrived to take the vehicle.
The deputy obtained two arrest warrants for the suspect for assault on an officer while resisting arrest and for driving with no license.
