GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCIV) -- One man is in custody after running from a sheriff deputy's traffic stop in Georgetown.

Georgetown County Sheriff's deputies were patrolling Highway 17 around 8 p.m. Thursday when they saw a vehicle traveling 95 mph. The driver did not stop when blue lights were activated and after several miles, he did a U-turn, pulled over and ran into the woods on foot.

Georgetown County Sheriff's Deputies with the assistance of the Charleston County Sheriff's Office searched for the suspect but did not catch him. The suspect's vehicle, a 2003 Ford Expedition, was towed.

Georgetown deputies said they were notified around 1 a.m. Friday that 33-year-old Travis Sentell Alston wanted to turn himself in. They picked him up without incident at Corner Loop in
the Santee Community.

In addition to an outstanding bench warrant, Alston is charged with Reckless Driving, being a Habitual Offender, Failure to Stop for Blue Lights, Unlawful Storage and Transport of Liquor, and Driving Under Suspension Second Offense for DUI.
