SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said the suspect who ran from the scene where a chase ended in a crash in Spartanburg County Wednesday night turned himself into deputies Thursday morning.

Deputies said Timothy Harrison, 20, of Chesnee, stopped by a friend's home on Burnetts Road in Chesnee about 8:40 p.m.

The friend notified deputies that the suspect, identified as Timothy Robert Harrison, was in a stolen vehicle that had been repainted white with a pink stripe, according to the report.

When deputies looked up Harrison in their system, they said they recognized him from a previous encounter where he ran from police in his vehicle. The report also said his mugshot from an Oct. 28, 2013 arrest came up and matched the person in the car.

Deputies said they tried to pull in front of and behind the car, but Harrison took off, driving through a ditch to get around them.

The chase began and then ended a little while later when Harrison crashed into a power pole on Rainbow Lake Road in Inman, where residents in the area reported power outages, deputies said. Harrison took off running and deputies said they were unsuccessful in their search for him.

Deputies said Harrison called them Thursday morning and said he wanted to turn himself in and was willing to surrender himself at a residence on Rainbow Lake Road.

Deputies said they responded to the residence and took Harrison into custody without incident.

Harrison was charged with incorrect license plate, failure to stop for blue lights, possession of a stolen vehicle and reckless driving. Harrison is being held at the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing, deputies said.

Harrison was denied bond by a magistrate judge on charges stemming from the incident on Wednesday night. The judge called Harrison "a danger to the public" who was already out on bond.
