A senior citizen in Jamestown called deputies after a disturbance at her Highway 17A residence on June 28 at about 10:30 a.m.
The victim said the subject, her nephew, came to her property to pick up a juvenile and overheard her telling another relative he does not come on her property and they would have to meet him outside, according to a Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office report.
The subject became angry and began using profanity toward the victim. He then picked up and threw two potted plants at the victim’s front door. The subject said he would return at night and burn down her house when no one else was present, according to the report.
The subject entered her yard and caused damage to three more plants and grass. Deputies responded two more times that day due to the subject returning to the property making more threats to the victim.
When deputies arrived again they found the subject inside his vehicle but he refused to exit. He spun his tires attempting to elude deputies, who followed on foot a safe distance, according to the report.
A deputy approached the subject’s vehicle, identified himself as law enforcement and said he had a warrant for his arrest. The subject rolled up his window and attempted to flee until he could no longer drive forward.
The subject hit a wooden structure behind the residence and exited the vehicle in a fighting stance. A deputy deployed his Taser and made contact with the subject, who was then placed in handcuffs.
A warrant was drafted and served for malicious damage to property.
