Posted: Updated:

WADMALAW ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) -- A man who spent three hours Friday afternoon barricaded inside a Wadmalaw Island home has surrendered to deputies.

At about 6:30 p.m., negotiators convinced Pearce W. Settle, 48, to surrender to SWAT deputies, said officials with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said he was taken into custody after some resistance.

According to a release from the sheriff's office, deputies were in the area of Leadenwah Road around 2:30 p.m. looking for a man wanted on three outstanding warrants.

Deputies said they saw the suspect driving a vehicle and tried to make a traffic stop. The man did not stop until he made it to a home and ran inside.

Deputies said the man told a family member he would hurt himself if deputies showed up.

Settle is charged grand larceny and obtaining good under false pretenses.
