The Bluffton Police Department said they have arrested 25-year-old Sherrod Green on several charges after a short pursuit on Thursday evening.

Police said they initially attempted to stop Green on a traffic stop, but he refused to pull over. At May River Road and Buck Island Road, he struck a vehicle and continued to flee.

After the pursuit, Green pulled over on Buck Island Road and continued to flee on foot. Police say when Green jumped out, he left his car in reverse, causing it to strike a marked Bluffton police cruiser. Green attempted to escape, but was apprehended a short time later on Buck Island Road.

A search of Green revealed suspected narcotics to include approximately 47 grams of suspected marijuana and 2 Grams of MDMA.

Bluffton PD say Green has been charged with failure to stop for blue lights, possession with intent to distribute MDMA, possession with intent to distribute MDMA within half a mile of a school or park, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute within half a mile of a school or park.

Green is currently being held in the Beaufort County Detention Center.
