A police chase that began with a vehicle and ended up on foot has culminated in two arrested, the driver of the car and a 17-year old passenger.
Simpsonville Police Chief Chip Minnis said that Simpsonville Police Officer Daniel Wills was on his way home Wednesday afternoon when he spotted a car traveling at a high rate of speed on the Shelbyville Bypass.
“When he began to pursue the vehicle, he [driver] started going even faster and he [Wills] got him to stop,” he said. “Then the passenger baled out of the car and took off running.”
