Neighbor captures video of fiery end to suspected drug dealer pursuit

Posted: Updated:
NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A woman captured video of a suspected drug dealer's SUV on fire after police say the vehicle hit a van during a police pursuit in a North Charleston neighborhood.

The North Charleston Police Department charged 27-year-old Stanley Phillip Greene with failure to stop for blue lights and siren, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, driving under suspension fifth offense, resisting arrest, leaving the scene of an accident, malicious injury to property as well as a ticket for illegal window tint.

Greene's arrest was caught on video by a neighborhood woman who also took video footage of firefighters responding to Greene's SUV which was on fire on Constitution Avenue Friday morning.

"All I know is go, all I know is go," Greene could be heard saying on the video."They get me, they get me. I'll be back atcha."

It all started when an officer on patrol in the area of Dorchester Road and Ranger Drive attempted to stop a white SUV for illegal window tint.

Police say the driver, Greene, failed to stop for the officer and came within feet of hitting another vehicle. A police report states that the SUV sped up and made "evasive maneuvers" in an attempt to escape from the officer. According to investigators, during the chase, the suspect's vehicle picked up speeds up to 85 mph, ran a stop sign and a stop light.

Authorities say when the driver lost control of the SUV on Constitution Avenue, the vehicle left the roadway, struck a van and rolled over. The officer said he then saw flames coming out of the SUV. The suspect then got out of the vehicle and took off carrying a large object in his left hand, police say.

A police report states that when the officer told the suspect to stop, the suspect continued to escape by jumping a fence, which caused the fence to fall down, and ran into a backyard on Olympia Avenue.

Police say when the suspect felt the officer grab his arm, he spun towards the officer. Authorities say the officer then saw an object being held by the suspect come towards him. Investigators say since the officer did not know if the suspect was attempting to harm him, the officer tazed the suspect.

The officer reported that he then saw the item the suspect was carrying, tossed into the air towards a garage. When the suspect rolled over, the prongs of the taser struck the suspect in his upper and lower back.

Police say the item that was discarded by the suspect was a large plastic bag which field tested positive for THC.

Greene was then transported to MUSC. Greene is also wanted for several outstanding warrants out of Charleston County.
