A Yemassee officer arrested a Port Royal man early Saturday morning after the man failed to pull over once the officer activated his blue lights. 

The officer watched 24-year-old Tywann Terry run a stop sign at Castle Hall Road. When the officer attempted to pull him over, Terry failed to stop and instead accelerated to speeds of 100 miles per hour. Terry finally stopped his vehicle upon reaching a mobile home on Wise Road in Yemassee, where he exited the vehicle and ran inside of the mobile home. 

Terry gave himself up to Yemassee Police five minutes later. He told police that his one-year-old daughter was in the car and requested that his father come and take custody of the child. 

Terry was taken to the Hampton Regional Medical Center for a laceration that was above his eye that he received when he ran into the mobile home. He has since been released and taken to the Hampton County Detention Center. He was charged with failure to stop for blue lights and child endangerment. 

Terry's daughter was not harmed.
