Dispute leads to police chase; drug arrest in Hanahan

Posted: Updated:

An alleged domestic violence case turned into a police chase Monday afternoon. Police say that 27-year-old Evette Nelson called them last Monday to say that 29-year-old Barry Stanley assaulted her. Stanley then took Nelson's car and led police on a chase throughout Berkeley and Charleston Counties, leading police on Interstate 26 until Stanley fled on foot. He was arrested Monday night on Wadmalaw Island.

But the case doesn't end there.

On Tuesday, Nelson told police that another man hit her, and she was just trying to get Stanley in trouble because he is an old boyfriend. But, later in the week, Nelson admitted that she lied to police about Stanley's involvement. During the investigation, police went to Nelson's home she shares with her two children and found a cocaine base in her microwave.

Nelson was charged with one count of obstruction of justice and 2 counts of unlawful conduct towards children for allegedly having the cocaine in the home with a 2-year-old and 11-month-old boys.

A neighbor tells News 2 that Stanley and Nelson moved into the apartment in Hanahan about a month ago. And, during that time, the neighbor says Stanley and Nelson acted strangely.

Bond was set at $120,000 Friday evening. A court date for Barry has not been set. He has been charged with Criminal Domestic Violence, Trafficking in Cocaine Base, Aggravated Assault, Failure to Stop for Blue Lights and Siren and two counts of Unlawful Conduct towards a Child.
