Report: Man tasered after running from cops with child in SUV

Posted: Updated:
WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

A Bamberg man is behind bars after authorities say he caused a wreck in West Ashley while fleeing police with a young girl in the back seat of his SUV.

According to a Charleston Police Department report, officers tried to pull over 25-year-old James Robert Canaday last Friday around 10:30 p.m. after hearing very loud music emanating from his silver Nissan Pathfinder.

The report states Canaday pulled into the K-Mart parking lot and tapped the brakes before fleeing south down Savannah Highway towards Interstate 526. Police called off the chase, and a short time later, officers said Canaday was involved in a wreck at Savannah Highway and Skylark Road.

When police arrived, two witnesses told them they saw Canaday pull a juvenile out of the back seat of the SUV and run towards the Motel 6 with her.

Police said they ran to the parking lot of the hotel, where they detained Canaday, who had just dropped the child off in room 144, where her mother and grandmother were staying.

Police said they had to use a stun gun on Canaday.

Canaday was found to be driving under suspension for the third time and was charged. He was also charged with unlawful conduct towards a child, failure to stop for blue lights and siren, a noise violation, and failure to comply with the non-resident violator compact.

No one was seriously injured in the wreck, but Canaday was taken to Roper St. Francis for treatment of injuries from the stun gun.

Canaday was granted a $23,020 bond, but remained behind bars at the Charleston County Detention Center on Monday.

The child was left in the care of her mother and grandmother.  It was unclear from the report if Canaday was the child's father.
