After an early-morning police chase, The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Seneca man on multiple charges.
Wayne Eugene Raffaldt, 44, of Singing Pines Road, was placed in the Oconee County Detention Center at 4:46 a.m. on Tuesday.
A deputy initiated a traffic stop on Raffaldt’s car when he noticed that the driver didn’t use a turn signal when turning, and that the tag on the silver Mitsubishi actually belonged to a Honda Accord.
The driver did not stop, though, and a police chase began.
The driver swerved into the wrong lane of traffic several times during the pursuit, and, at one point, he threw something out of the window, according to deputies.
When the chase continued onto I-85, another deputy put out stop sticks, in hopes of ending it.
Deputies say the car came to a stop at Exit 4, or Highway 243 inside Oconee County.
Raffaldt was taken into custody after deputies say they found what they believed to be marijuana on him, and meth in his car.
Raffaldt was charged in traffic tickets on charges of Driving under Suspension (3rd or Subsequent Offense), Unlawful Use of a License Plate, Reckless Driving, Simple Possession of Marijuana and a violation of the County Littering Ordinance.
He was also placed in temporary custody and charged with Failure to Stop for a Blue Light (2nd or Subsequent Offense), Possession of Methamphetamine and for being a Habitual Traffic Offender.
