Solicitor Duffie Stone told the Hampton County judge Tuesday to keep Sullivan in jail because he is a flight risk and a danger to society. The judge agreed and denied bond.

Deputies say 37-year-old Perry Sullivan started racing down Highway 641 crossing into Colleton County and heading toward Walterboro on Saturday morning. An off-duty police officer heard the 911 call, saw Sullivan, and the chase began.

Authorities captured Sullivan around 9:30 a.m. at the intersections of 641 and 601.

The arrest came after the armed escapee evaded police in Sycamore late Friday night at a road check point and was on the run since he overpowered a deputy Thursday during a prisoner transport.

An Allendale Sheriff's Office spokesman says the escapee car jacked a woman at a convenience store in Sycamore. Sullivan was chased into Colleton County where police finally arrested him.

Officers recovered a weapon stolen from a deputy in the initial incident Thursday and Sullivan is currently being transported to the Hampton County Detention Center.
