A Fort Mill man led local police on a six-mile chase Monday night that damaged a homeowner’s white-picket fence, according to a police report.
Clifton Liewald, 33, was behind the wheel of a blue Honda Accord when an officer tried to pull him over on North White Street for having a tag that didn’t match records for the vehicle he was driving. The driver started making evasive maneuvers before pulling over and letting a passenger out. The driver then continued fleeing, a report says. (Story continues below)
A chase went from Spratt Street to Harris Street and continued for 6.7 miles before the suspect was taken into custody on South Dobys Bridge Road near the Massey subdivision. Officer Helvey confirmed that the man’s license was suspended.
During the pursuit, Liewald caused damage to property at 893 J.W. Wilson Road after striking several sections of fence, the police report says.
Liewald was charged with failure to stop for blue lights, driving under suspension, operating uninsured vehicle and improper vehicle license. He was being held Tuesday afternoon in the York County Detention Center under a $5,000 bond.
