HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An Horry County Police officer turned himself in to J. Reuben Long Detention Center on the morning of Wednesday, January 28 after fleeing from a traffic stop on the night of Monday, January 26.

Bradley Everett Boggs, 39, is charged with reckless driving and failure to stop for a blue light, according to Corporal Sonny Collins with the South Carolina highway Patrol.

On Monday night, SCHP tried to pull over Boggs for speeding on Spanish Oaks Drive, near Murrells Inlet, Collins said. The trooper pursued Boggs to Lynco Lane in Myrtle Beach, where Boggs got out of the car and fled on foot.

Boggs was clocked at driving at over 100 miles per hour in an area with a speed limit of 55, according to the SCHP incident report. When the trooper initiated a traffic stop, they observed Boggs' vehicle swerving out of its lane. The trooper activated their lights and siren, and the driver jumped out of the vehicle on Lynco Lane. The driver's side door was left open and struck a mailbox as it rolled onto a sidewalk, the report states.

Boggs was being sought by SCHP until he turned himself in at J. Reuben Long Detention Center Wednesday morning at 8:20 a.m. He was released about one hour later on a $5,445 bail, according to jail records.

County spokeswoman Lisa Bourcier confirmed that Boggs was a patrol officer with Horry County Police from May 10, 2010 until January 28, 2015.
