Sep 09 Written by  STAFF REPORTS

A Laurens County man was arrested on Friday evening after a high-speed chase near Laurens Academy.

A deputy with the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop a 2007 Silver Pontiac Grand Prix just after 6pm on Friday for a traffic offense. The driver, later identified as Quienzavius Terrell Rogers, then fled in the vehicle at a high rate of speed with the deputy giving chase. 

After pursuing Rogers for a brief time, other deputies monitoring the chase were able to deploy “stop sticks” in Rogers’ path. The “stop sticks” disabled the vehicle on Highway 49, near Laurens Academy, ending the chase. 

Rogers then fled on foot, but deputies captured him in a field nearby minutes later.

Rogers, 25, of 210 Cow Trail Rd. in Gray Court, was placed under arrest and he will be charged with speeding, reckless driving, failure to stop for a blue light and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamines. 

Rogers was transported to the Laurens County Detention Center.
