NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - A deputy attempting to stop a man for speeding in Ladson ended in North Charleston after his car struck a curb.

Dontrell Montez Cochran, 29, has been charged with failure to stop for blue lights, driving with a suspended license and reckless driving.

Cochran didn't stop when authorities tried to pull him over near the Ladson Fairgrounds shortly after 3 a.m., according to Charleston County Sheriff's Office spokesman Roger Antonio.

The pursuit went through Goose Creek and then into North Charleston.

When Cochran tried to drive back onto I-526, the car struck the curb, Antonio said.

The vehicle was disabled and Cochran ran before he was taken into custody a short time later, Antonio said.

According to jail records, a judge set bail at a total of $3,087. That includes $2,000 for the failure to stop for a blue light charge; $642 for the driving under a suspended license charge; and $445 for the reckless driving charge.

Cochran was being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
