Police: Two in custody after subjects police said were shooting paintballs at vehicles fled officers on foot

Posted: Updated:

Police said two subjects are in custody following a foot chase in Greenville.

Officials with Greenville Police Department said they received multiple calls around 5 and 6 p.m. in reference to people shooting paintballs at vehicles while driving around Mauldin Road, Cavalier Drive, Millennium Blvd, Laurens Road and Woodruff Road.

Police said an officer stopped one of the vehicles involved off Laurens Road, where they say the subjects fled on foot. No people were hit or injured by the paintballs, however.

Police said they spotted a vehicle matching the description of the one involved, and when they initiated a traffic stop, the car sped off and eventually stopped behind the building at Sky Zone on Laurens Road. That's when police say the pair took off on foot.

One subject rain into the woods and eventually walked out and surrendered, said police. 

Police said they got a call that another subject had run into a nearby Bojangles. Both were arrested without incident.

Officers said the subjects had marijuana in the car - that is why they were being charged. They have not yet confirmed if either subject was involved in the paintball incidents, however they were pulled over because the vehicle matched the description of the suspect vehicle. 

There were no paintball guns found in the vehicle when the subjects were arrested. Police said there is some information or evidence that may connect the subjects to the paintball incidents, however.

According to police, two subjects are in custody at this time in connection with the incident, but others may have been involved. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Greenville Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME.
