The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said a man was arrested after he attempted to stab his girlfriend and led deputies on a chase. 

Deputies said 40-year-old Harold Jones III was arrested on Monday in connection with the incident. 

According to the sheriff's office, Jones and the victim had been arguing when he grabbed a large kitchen knife, held it to her neck and threatened to kill her. The incident report stated that Jones repeatedly asked the victim if she was ready to die. 

Deputies said Jones tried to cut her arm with the knife, but the victim was able to pull her arm away.

The sheriff's office said Jones accelerated away from the scene in an attempt to escape when deputies arrived. Deputies said they actively chased Jones for several blocks. A tire went flat on Jones' vehicle and he lost control, going into the side of an embankment, deputies said. 

According to deputies, Jones was arrested after the vehicle crashed. Deputies said a baggy with a white, powdery substance was found on Jones at the time of his arrest. 

Jones was charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, reckless driving, failure to stop for blue lights and driving under suspension third offense. 

The sheriff's office said Jones had two prior domestic violence convictions. 

Jones is currently being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
