Pursuit Leads to Two Arrests

On March 20th at approximately 9:45PM, Clinton Police Department was involved in a pursuit that began in their jurisdiction and Laurens County Sheriff’s Office deputies joined to assist as the pursuit continued to I-26 and 385. The suspect driver did fail to maintain lane, drove at exceedingly high speeds, and drove in the wrong direction at times. In an effort to keep other drivers safe, the suspect vehicle was successfully disabled at which time the driver struck a power pole, causing the southbound lane of traffic to be shut down for a period of time.

The individuals below were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries and will be charged as follows:

Russell Lee Ivester Jr.

Driving Under The Influence

Possession of Meth

Failure to Stop For Blue Lights, 2nd or subsequent offense

Driving Under Suspension, 2nd offense

Michael Randolph Weeks Jr.

Warrant from CPD for Breach of Trust

“I want to thank these deputies for protecting citizens who could have been in harm’s way last night. When criminals believe they can get away from facing consequences, they will do anything- including risking the lives of others. Both of these individuals have been in and out of our jail four times alone in the past year. We will keep bringing them back and pray that the justice system keeps them there before someone else pays for their actions.” – Sheriff Don Reynolds
