Property, Failure to Stop for Blue Lights, Reckless Driving, Driving Under Suspension and Possession of a Controlled Substance.

At approximately 5 p.m. on June 9, 2014, Georgetown County Sheriff's Deputies responded to gun shots at the Bahai Institute located at 1313 Williams Hill Road in the Pleasant Hill Community of Georgetown County. Two male victims claimed during a
basketball game Washington became verbally abusive and was trying to start a fight.

Washington left the scene and then returned a short time later with a handgun, fired several shots into the air, and shot all four tires on the victims' vehicle. Washington then attempted to run over one victim on the basketball court and fled the scene.

A short time later, Washington returned to the scene and fled when he observed sheriff's deputies. Sheriff's Deputies attempted a traffic stop and a vehicle pursuit ensued. The vehicle pursuit continued on County Line Road and ended on Moore Drive when the vehicle left the road and collided with a ditch. The driver of the vehicle fled into the woods.

On June 10, 2014 Marquis Washington surrendered to law enforcement and is currently being housed at the Georgetown County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
