Antonio Myers, 31, of Santee Road in McClellanville is accused of ramming a deputy’s patrol car after a drug deal.

A McClellanville man accused of ramming a Charleston County deputy’s patrol car after a drug deal last week is back behind bars on new charges.

Antonio Myers, 31, of Santee Road was arrested June 21. Charleston County Sheriff’s detectives said Myers accepted a package containing 33 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $59,400. When deputies tried to arrest him, he rammed a patrol car with his 2000 Mitsbushi Montero, according to Sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady.

Myers was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana and malicious injury to property. He was released from jail on $40,000 bail.

After further investigation, Myers was arrested again Thursday and charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance within a half mile of a school, Brady said. He was being held in the Charleston County jail.
