FLORENCE, SC (WBTW) – Deputies in Florence County say a suspected crack dealer, who was previously jailed for allegedly hitting a police cruiser, tried to run from them during a traffic stop. According to a news release from the Florence County Sheriff’s office, Brandon Dominique Fludd, was pulled over on Dec. 14 for a moving violation.
Deputies say Fludd originally stopped for their blue lights on Lawson Street, but sped away once the deputy got out of his cruiser. According to deputies, Fludd eventually stopped on West Marion Street after a chase through a nearby neighborhood.
Deputies say they found an “off white rock like substance believed to be crack cocaine, a box of clear sandwich baggies and a digital scale with white powder residue consistent with the sale and distribution of illegal narcotics.”
Fludd was charged with failure to stop for blue light and distribution of crack cocaine (second offense). He was released from the Florence County Detention Center on Dec. 15 on a $30,000 surety bond.
In March of 2018, Fludd was arrested after allegedly hitting a police cruiser with his vehicle during a traffic stop. 12th Circuit Solicitor Ed Clements said a constable then fired eight shots towards Fludd. Fludd’s attorney said he was shot three times.
