Fleeing suspect flips car and keeps on running during high-speed pursuit

A young Texan is in serious trouble today after he led South Carolina deputies on a destructive, high-speed chase last week.

According to WLTX, a Kershaw County, SC, sheriff's deputy spotted a vehicle flying down interstate 20 at speeds at over 100 miles per hour on the evening of February 10. Behind the wheel was Malik Deshai Shoulders, an unlicensed 18-year-old from Fort Worth, Texas. The deputy gave chase and Shoulders hit the gas.

After running up I-20 for a while, Shoulders exited at US-601 where, while attempting a sharp turn, he rolled his car. The little black Ford flipped two or three times before miraculously landing back on its wheels. Apparently taking this as a sign his plan was going well, Shoulders took off again with the law hot on his tail.

In his now heavily damaged Ford, Shoulders fled toward the town of Lugoff which is where the wheels finally came off, figuratively speaking. As he approached US-1, Shoulders tried to take a right-hander at speed and lost control of the car again. He flew across US-1 and skidded to a stop in the parking lot of the Raspberry Court strip mall where pursuing deputies arrested him. Shoulders told the officers that he ran because he didn't have a driver's license and had marijuana in the car.

Shoulders was hauled off to the Kershaw County Detention Center and charged with failure to stop for a blue light, marijuana possession, no valid driver's license, and speeding in excess of 25 miles per hour over the posted limit.
