YORK, S.C. - A review of a police chase last month in York determined the police chief and three officers violated a number of policies during the pursuit which reached speeds of 137 mph.
The State Law Enforcement Division is also reviewing what happened after the April 4 chase, including whether York Police Chief Andy Robinson stepped on a handcuffed suspect. Robinson remains on the job.
The Herald of Rock Hill obtained the review of the chase done by the city manager and other police officers. It determined Robinson should have called off the chase because of the dangers of the high speeds in the small town.
The report says one officer drove in the opposite lane at nearly 100 mph while chasing the suspected car thief.
Robinson remains on the job.
