North Charleston murder suspect arrested after running stop sign, report says
A North Charleston murder suspect was arrested Sunday after he went through a stop sign in a stolen car and almost ran into a deputy, according to the incident report released today.
According to the report, a Charleston County Sheriff’s deputy was patrolling the Lincolnville area when a car went through a stop sign at East Owens and East Richardson, crossed the center line and almost ran into the patrol car. The car swerved back into its lane and sped away.
The deputy turned around to follow the car, which again crossed the center line as it turned onto Railroad Avenue and sped up well past the 30 mph speed limit, according to the report.
The driver of the fleeing car eventually stopped near East Berry and East Randolph and jumped out. He took off running, holding his waistband with both hands, according to the report.
The deputy released a dog that eventually brought the man down.
The driver was identified as Kadrin R. Singleton, 22, of Lebsl Court in Summerville, who was a suspect in a Nov. 20 homicide on Cambridge Street in North Charleston.
According to the report, Singleton told deputies he fled because he was driving a stolen car. Police confirmed that the car had been stolen in North Charleston and that the tags were stolen in Summerville. The owner of the car was notified that it had been recovered.
Singleton was charged with reckless driving, failure to stop for blue lights and siren, resisting arrest and possession of a stolen car, in addition to the murder charge.
He remains in the Charleston County jail.
