Upstate law enforcement officers are searching for a man who hit three patrol cars Tuesday morning.

Tuesday morning, at around 9:30 a.m., a deputy was flagged down in regards to a man passed out in a vehicle, near the clubhouse in Blue Ridge Plantation neighborhood, located in Taylors.

The deputy approached the vehicle and during the time the deputy was establishing contact with the driver he put the car in drive and drove away, striking the deputy’s patrol car. The deputy, who did not suffer any injuries, attempted to pursue the vehicle but lost sight of him.

During the course of investigation, deputies learned the suspect was driving a stolen 2008 Volvo station wagon and deputies identified the driver as 21 year-old, Samuel Bryson Pearson.

At around 4:45 p.m., deputies learned the suspect’s vehicle was at a residence, located at 730 Hammett Road, in Spartanburg County. Accompanied by deputies with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, units spotted the suspect’s vehicle and Pearson sitting in the driver’s seat.

As deputies attempted to give Pearson verbal commands, Pearson drove off, striking two more Sheriff’s Office patrol cars and almost hitting another person.

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office has active warrants on Pearson for Failure to Stop for a Blue Light and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. In addition, warrants are expected to be issued by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office pertaining to the incident that unfolded within their jurisdiction.

At this time, deputies are seeking information pertaining to the whereabouts of Pearson and ask for anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 23-CRIME.
