Hanahan man arrested for police chase has long criminal history

Posted: Updated:

The man arrested for leading police on a high speed pursuit throughout Berkeley and Charleston Counties last week has a long criminal record.

29-year-old Barry Jerod Stanley was arrested Monday night, a week after the chase. He faced a bond court judge Monday morning and was officially charged with Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature, Failure to Stop for Blue lights, Trafficking Cocaine Base and two counts of Unlawful Conduct Towards a Child. He was given a $72,130 bond.

The woman he was reportedly living with called police earlier this month called police to say Stanley hit her. After authorities arrived, they say Stanley took the woman's car and led them on a chase. A neighbor, who lives above the couple and didn't want to be identified said the couple was nothing but normal.

"I couldn't say anything negative about these people; I never heard a sound, and I can hear everything below me. All I ever heard was the kids being kids, but I was shocked because I never heard anything," the neighbor said.

The chase ended in Downtown Charleston when Stanley left his car and fled on foot. Stanley has a long history with police.

His record dates back to April of 2000 when he was arrested for Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine in the Proximity of a School. Stanley was arrested many more times, including six times during 2004 alone. His record also includes charges of Strong Armed Robbery, Resisting Arrest and another charge of Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature.

The neighbor saw none of that behavior.

"It was a big surprise because I never saw any indication of that," she said. "The only thing I can say I ever saw was that someone picked him up late one night."

Both Stanley and the woman who accused him of hitting her remain behind bars at this time. The woman was given a $120,000 for lying to police and two counts of Unlawful Conduct Towards Children after police found a cocaine base in her microwave during their investigation. Stanley has not been charged with hitting the woman.
