BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Deputies have arrested a man they consider armed and dangerous following a car chase that ended in Berkeley County Friday afternoon.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office arrested 47-year-old Chester Lee Feagin, Jr. after searching for him.

The sheriff’s office said just before 2:30 p.m. Friday, a deputy was conducting proactive patrols on Bethera Road in Bonneau. A report states the deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a Ford F-150, and the vehicle fled from the deputy.

“The vehicle pursuit ended when Feagin wrecked his vehicle on Highway 402 near Copperhead Road,” BCSO officials said. “Feagin then fled from the scene on foot.”

Deputies said the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, North Charleston Police Department and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources conducted a search for Feagin in the Huger area.

Feagin had warrants from Mount Pleasant Police Department for Criminal Sexual Conduct, and warrants from North Charleston Police Department for property crimes.

The sheriff’s office says Feagin had been considered to be armed and dangerous with multiple violent tendency caution indicators. They advised people not to approach him, and to instead call 911.
