WAYNESBURG - A Kings Mountain man is being held on charges of first-degree fleeing and evading police and first-degree wanton endangerment after allegedly leading state police on a high speed chase Tuesday.

Shannon Snow, 19, had an active warrant out for his arrest for allegedly violating a domestic violence order.

Snow also was wanted for questioning about the assault of Lloyd Ruckle, 67, owner of Ruckle's Grocery in Waynesburg. Ruckle was hospitalized Tuesday after the assault. Police report that charges stemming from the assault are pending.

When Trooper Mark Young tried to stop Snow, he fled in his vehicle on Tick Ridge Road to U.S. 27. The pursuit reached 120 mph.

"It was about 9 miles in six minutes," said Lt. M.J. Harrison, state police supervision officer.

State police said as the pursuit approached Stanford, a Lincoln County deputy sheriff joined the pursuit ahead of Snow. Snow proceded to ram the cruiser several times. The pursuit ended when Snow's vehicle locked with the deputy's cruiser.

Harrison said that Snow stopped the vehicle and was briefly chased on foot before his arrest. No one was injured during the ordeal. Snow is being held at the Lincoln County Regional Jail in lieu of a $30,000 cash bond.
