CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A chase that began in North Charleston ended with the arrest of a man wanted for three other charges including criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, police say.

Rondell Robert Washington, 26, was arrested and charged with failure to stop for blue lights and siren, according to an incident report.

Police say they were attempting to serve a warrant on Washington for other charges when he fled Saturday afternoon from a Remount Road business in a white Ford Explorer. The report states Washington failed to stop for blue lights and sirens and crossed into opposing lanes of traffic to elude police.

Washington entered onto the westbound lanes of I-26, where he reached a speed of approximately 119 m.p.h. while crossing multiple lanes of traffic, police say. He then exited the interstate onto Highway 17A, reaching speeds of approximately 100 m.p.h., a report states, and eventually pulled over in Moncks Corner where police took him into custody.

In addition to the criminal domestic violence and failure to stop for blue lights and siren charges, Washington also faces charges of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and unlawful conduct toward a child, the report states.

He was transported to the Al Cannon Detention Center.
