CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Dash camera videos have been released of a car chase which ended with an arrest and damaged Charleston County sheriff's vehicles. 

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office say the chase happened on Monday when David McFarland led authorities on a chase through I-526 and Savanna Highway in a stolen car and caused $2,000 in damage to deputies' cars. 

The video shows authorities pursuing a vehicle which eventually is surrounded by several patrol cars. 

McFarland is facing charges including possessing a stolen vehicle, two counts of failure to stop for blue lights, four counts of first degree assault and battery, failure to surrender a driver's license, and two counts of driving with a suspended license. 

According to the sheriff's office, during the pursuit, stop sticks were deployed, but McFarland's vehicle continued.

A report by the sheriff's office states that McFarland damaged four law enforcement vehicles during the chase. 

Authorities say the chase ended when a deputy was able to turn his vehicle toward the stolen vehicle and pin it against a tree.

Deputies and North Charleston police officers were able to forcibly remove the suspect through the passenger's front door and put him in handcuffs, according to CCSO officials.
