ANDERSON Co., S.C. (WSPA) – One person faces charges after leading Anderson County deputies on a chase.

According to the sheriff’s office, a deputy tried to stop a vehicle for reckless driving on Moores Mill Road in Piedmont on Wednesday night.

Deputies used tire deflation devices to flatten the driver’s tires.

The driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed while attempting to turn onto Ivy Circle in Anderson with four flat tires, deputies said. The driver then backed into an Anderson County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle while trying to get away, causing minor damage.

Deputies said the driver refused to get out of the vehicle. Deputies entered the vehicle to get the driver out. While deputies were attempting to get the driver out, the driver reached for a gun in the passenger side of the car.

Deputies say the driver was taken to the hospital and charges are pending.

Sergeant JT Foster with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office identified the driver as 26-year-old Semeca D. Oglesby. She’s facing charges of failure to stop for blue lights, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and unlawful carrying of a handgun, according to Foster.
