SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

A Spartanburg County Deputy was nearly hit by an empty car, when he pulled into the Hot Spot on Blackstock Road. The car was in reverse, and rolling through the parking lot.

The deputy went inside the store to find out who the car belonged to. Gregory Grice told the deputy, he had been drinking and that the car was hit, but his friend was driving. 

While the deputy waited for the friend to get out of the bathroom, Grice went outside, and got into the car. The deputy said he instructed Grice to park the car in a parking space, but Grice took off instead at a high rate of speed.

The deputy gave chase, but lost sight of the car. He found it a short time later on Lincoln School Road at the former Spartanburg Alternative School. When the deputy pulled up, he saw Grice walking away from the car. 

According to the incident report, the deputy told Grice to stop, but he refused and took off running toward a wooded area, while opening and drinking a beer. The deputy chased Grice down and put the cuffs on him. When the deputy told Grice to stand up, he refused, saying that he hurt his leg.

Eventually, Grice got up and the deputy escorted him to his patrol car. The incident report states Grice then informed the deputy, that he defecated in his pants, during the chase.

The deputy determined Grice's license was suspended and that he had at least 3 prior convictions for driving under suspension in the last 5 years.

The deputy arrested Grice and had his vehicle towed. A short time later, Grice ended up in the hospital, complaining of chest pains. The incident report states at some point, Grice collapsed on the floor and hurt his neck and back. Grice was treated and released from the hospital and taken to jail.

    Duke Energy Says Customers Will Likely Foot The Bill To Cleanup Coal AshDuke Energy Says Customers Will Likely Foot The Bill To Cleanup Coal Ash
    Duke Energy says that removing all of the company's coal ash away from North Carolina's rivers and lakes would take decades and cost up to $10 billion, with the state's electricity customers likely footing nearly all the bill. Duke's North Carolina president Paul Newton told state lawmakers Tuesday the company needs flexibility to consider more cost-efficient options that include leaving much of its 100 million tons of toxic ash in place after being covered with giant tarps and soil.
