ANDERSON, SC (WSPA) – A couple was arrested Wednesday after leading the Anderson County sheriff on a short chase.

Sheriff Chad McBride attempted to stop a pickup on Old Williamston Road that was reported as suspicious to dispatch, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies say the driver, Joshua Allen Mitchell, pulled into a residence on Boulevard near Calhoun Drive in Anderson before running from the scene. A passenger, later identified as Mitchell’s girlfriend, Jessica Adela Obregon, was arrested at the scene.

According to an incident report, an Anderson police officer stopped Mitchell behind a house on North Street.  Mitchell was being held at gunpoint when an officer arrived on scene.

Mitchell reportedly told an officer he ran because he was scared and didn’t want to go to jail. The 29-year-old Anderson man is charged with possession of methamphetamine, failing to stop for a blue light, driving under suspension and receiving stolen goods.

Obregon, 26, was unable to stand without help, her eyes were bloodshot and she appeared to be under the influence. She admitted to smoking meth shortly before the traffic stop, the report states.

Obregon is charged with public disorderly conduct.
