A Spartanburg driver is accused of failing to stop for officers who tried to pull him over for having a stolen tag and driving suspended, all while having his 5-year-old son in the front seat.

A deputy pulled behind a trooper Tuesday who was trying to pull a red Jeep over for reckless driving and a suspended license, according to a Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office report. The report said the car also had a stolen license plate on it.

The officers followed the Jeep along Highway 9 at 65mph before he turned onto smaller streets, slowing down then finally stopping in front of a home on Hill Street, the report said.

When he stopped, the driver put his hands out of the window and a small boy got out of the front passenger door and ran inside the house, deputies said. The home was the driver's, 37-year-old Tang Keth, the report said.

Troopers charged Keth with reckless driving and operating an uninsured vehicle while deputies charged him with child endangerment, failure to stop for a blue light, habitual traffic offender, driving under suspension third offense and receiving stolen goods.

Deputies said the license plate was stolen from a car parked at a home on Mule Lane in Roebuck on July 11.

Keth is behind held on nearly $16,000 combined bonds.
