ANDERSON CO., S.C. (WSPA) – Deputies arrested a man who they say fired shots at an officer and fled a traffic stop.
Justin Kvalheim Babb, 31, is charged with attempted murder of a police officer and failure to stop for blue lights.
His bond was denied Friday, according to the the magistrate court.
Deputies say they tried to stop Babb for a traffic violation on Belton Highway Wednesday night when he fired shots at an officer and fled on foot. The deputy was not hurt in the incident, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
More than a dozen deputies were at the scene around 10 p.m. Wednesday, while a helicopter and K-9 officers also assisted in the search for Babb.
Deputies say Babb was arrested at a home in Anderson County.
A previous version of this story spelled the suspect’s last name as Babby. It has been corrected to Babb.
