CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators say a 25-year-old man who took off after deputies attempted to arrest him at his home has surrendered to the sheriff's office.

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office say Jacquan Terrinado Spann surrendered to deputies on Wednesday.

Deputies attempted to serve four bench warrants on Spann on June 3 at his Courtland Avenue residence when they say he attempted to exit the window through a back door. When he realized the back door was locked, deputies say Spann jumped through a closed back window where another deputy was standing by.

A struggle ensued and the deputy deployed his Taser weapon as Spann ran towards his driveway, but the weapon had no effect on Spann, who was able to get into his vehicle, according to Charleston County Sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson.

A deputy tried for the second time to use his Taser against Spann, but Spann was able to get the car in gear and drive off, which resulted in the deputy's Taser falling into Spann's vehicle, Watson said.

Deputies say Spann may have had the deputy's X26 Taser. The weapon does not have its deployable cartridges attached to it, but it can still be used to incapacitate a person, Watson said.

Spann was being served four General Sessions bench warrants for failing to appear in court for four counts of manufacturing and possession of Schedule I, II, III drugs with intent to distribute, according to court records.
