A 21-year-old man injured in a wreck following a police chase follows several charges, including burglary.
Deputies arrested Nicholas Demarcu Veal after an early morning chase today from a business, In Tha Hood Fashions, 1207 Broad River Road, to Arrowood Road at Lewand Drive.
Veal is the suspect in a break-in at the business around 3 a.m. Deputies responding to the burglary call saw a silver car speeding away from the store with its headlights off, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department said.
The driver did not stop for pursuing deputies’ blue lights and a chase ensued that ended with the car’s wreck at Arrowood.
Veal’s injuries were described as non-life threatening. The wrecked car was reported stolen in Lexington County.
