Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a man early Friday morning after a 40 mile per hour chase.
Terrence Mechaun Talley is charged with parties to a crime and loitering.
A deputy was trying to stop a 1998 Ford Explorer that was towing a trailer - without operating lights - around 2:30am.
Deputies say someone kept driving from the intersection of Hidden Hill Road and East Blackstock Road into Quail Pointe Apartments. When the Explorer hit a speed bump, the trailer came loose and came to a stop against a curb.
The driver kept going into the Westgate Apartments and onto Tamara Way before striking an object and stopping on Pueblo Drive.
Talley fled from the vehicle, but was later found by a search dog team and arrested. The driver also fled the Explorer after the crash and has not been caught.
Deputies say the chase never exceed 40mph and the distance traveled was less than a mile.
