CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County sheriff's deputies are looking for Detroit Lamont Mitchell.

Mitchell, 33, is wanted on five charges, including failure to stop for a blue light in the Town of Hollywood.

"He bailed out leaving behind some marijuana which arises to the other charge, possession of marijuana third offense," said Charleston County Sheriff's Deputy Reggie Sharpe.

Deputies say Mitchell also was driving with a suspended license and is wanted for failing to pay child support.

"Apparently he doesn't comply with his family court obligations, that's first and foremost we can see that," said Sharpe.

It's the failure to stop for a blue light charge that has cops concerned.

"Obviously he didn't care about anybody but himself and it's just by the grace of God no one was hurt," Sharpe said. "He may have been running because he knew he would go to jail if he stopped."

Mitchell stands 5'10" and weighs about 185 lbs.

His last known address was on Highway 162 in Hollywood.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
