Spartanburg County deputies said they took two people into custody after a high-speed chase in the county Thursday night.

Deputies said an officer on patrol noticed a car pull into a driveway of a known drug location and after a few minutes leave. The officer followed the car and when the vehicle made a turn without a signal, the deputy turned on his blue lights to pull the car over, according to the sheriff's office report.

The car fled and a chase began along Anderson Road, then onto Long Branch Road to Highway 11, deputies said. At one point, the car turned its lights off and turned onto Peachtree Road before speeding off again, reaching speeds of more than 100 mph, deputies said.

The officer eventually lost sight of the car, deputies said. Another officer spotted a similar looking car a short time later, but deputies said it was not the same vehicle.

At some point, deputies were able to locate the correct car and took the driver and passenger into custody.

Deputies identified the driver as Angela McClure, 28, and charged her with two open container violations for beer and liquor, along with failure to stop for blue lights and an uninsured vehicle fee.

Deputies said the passenger, 28-year-old Ernest McCumber, was wanted on two criminal domestic violence warrants and arrested.
