Early Morning Car Chase


By Joy Batt


A man who authorities say led them on a morning car chase is behind bars tonight.

Around 1 am Sunday morning Richland County Deputies noticed a car matching the description of one wanted in a missing persons case.

Authorities tried to pull the car over but they say 49 year old Benjamin Kearse took off.

Kearse slammed into a tree a short time later on Decker Boulevard.

He is facing several charges including driving under the influence and possession of cocaine.
