Chase suspect behind bars again for driving under suspension

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators say a 31-year-old man who led deputies on a high speed chase earlier this year was arrested again Monday morning for driving under suspension.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office charged Timothy Shawn McManus with driving under suspension third-offense, being a habitual offender, borrowing or lending a license tag and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.

At 6:20 a.m. deputies responded to the area of 1428 Six Mile Road for a report of a suspicious vehicle in the roadway.

When authorities arrived they found a 2001 Chevy Suburban in the roadway with McManus behind the driver's seat.  According to an incident report, McManus was asleep behind the wheel of the vehicle which was still in drive when deputies approached.

When asked for his driver's license, McManus told deputies, "I don't have one."

McManus said that he drove to the location but that his car had broken down.

A deputy then asked McManus if he had a phone to call someone for help. An incident report states that McManus said, "No," but he was holding his cell phone in his right hand.

Deputies were then informed by dispatch that McManus has five prior convictions for driving under suspension and that McManus' vehicle had the wrong tags.

McManus was locked up at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center.

On Jan. 30, 2012, investigators say McManus was arrested after fleeing from a traffic stop that Sheriff Al Cannon initiated. Cannon said he observed McManus driving in a dangerous manner on Highway 17.

Authorities say the incident resulted in a lengthy pursuit ending on Steed Creek Road. A few days after the pursuit Cannon gave a press conference where he said that he had slapped and cursed at McManus.

Cannon said that he slapped McManus after McManus said,"Ain't nothing wrong with me." Cannon said he felt obligated to come forward to reveal he slapped McManus.
