When deputies attempted to stop the vehicle in which Jackson, 23, was a passenger, the driver of the vehicle, identified as Jomonte Hill, 26, didn’t pull over. Instead, Hill led deputies on a chase, according to Sergeant Brittany Hart, Public Information Officer with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.

After a brief standoff with deputies, the men surrendered peacefully.

Hill is charged with reckless driving and failure to stop for blue lights and siren.
