WJBF News Channel 6 has learned a naked man was arrested after a car chase that started in New Ellenton ended on Whiskey Road at Easy Street in Aiken.
Aiken Department of Public Safety officials confirm officers assisted New Ellenton Police Department officers in the chase and arrest of 41-year-old Darrick Cooper, of New Ellenton.
ADPS officers reportedly used their stop sticks and tased Cooper because they say he was fighting with a New Ellenton Police officer and a Aiken County Sheriff's Office deputy as they tried to get him out of the car.
The Aiken County Sheriff's Office, the South Carolina Highway Patrol, and the Jackson Police Department also assisted in the chase.
We are told Cooper may suffer from mental problems. He is facing charges of Driving Under Suspicion, Driving Under the Influence, Larceny/Grand Larceny Over $2,000 but less than $10,000, and Failure to Stop for Blue Lights.
We will continue to follow this story and provide more details as they become available.
