SPARTANBURG, S.C - Two men were arrested Friday night after a traffic stop led to a chase in downtown Spartanburg.

The incident took place just before 11 p.m. when a police officer attempted to pull over a car that 22-year-old Marion Douglas Garnett, of Spartanburg, was driving. According to the report, Garnett sped away from the officer, who had turned on his blue lights, and nearly lost control of the car at the intersection of South Center Street and Farley Avenue. 

The chase continued after Garnett managed to gain control of the car. According to the report, Garnett then took a left onto Saxon Avenue and finally lost control of the car as it crashed into the curb and came to a stop. 

An officer stated that Garnett and a passenger, 22-year-old Christopher Jakeem Camp, also of Spartanburg, got out of the car and started to run from the scene. However, Camp was quickly apprehended, and after a brief foot chase Garnett was caught on Saxon Avenue.  

The officers placed Garnett and Camp under arrest and found a handgun and substance, which tested positive as cocaine, along with other drug paraphernalia during a subsequent search of the car. While checking records on the handgun, the officers found out it had been stolen. 

The two men were placed under arrest and transported to the Spartanburg County Detention Center where they were each charged possession of cocaine, possession of a stolen pistol and unlawful carrying of a pistol. Garnett was also charged with hit-and-run, reckless driving and failure to stop for a blue light.
 
Garnett was released from the Detention Center on bond, while Camp is still being held on $84,000 bond.
