A Beaufort man was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with drug trafficking after he allegedly fled a traffic stop and wreck in Bluffton.
Titus Glenn Singleton, 25, was charged with heroin trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, driving with an open container of alcohol, failure to stop for blue lights, disregarding a stop sign and driving under the influence, according to the jail log.
About 1 a.m. Nov. 16, Singleton was stopped by the S.C. Highway Patrol near Sheridan Park Circle when he suddenly accelerated, crossed the median of U.S. 278 and drove into Plantation Point, according to reports. There, he crashed into a car and a business van, totaling those vehicles and his car, before running away, the reports said. Troopers were unable to catch Singleton that morning but recovered 15 grams of heroin, 63 grams of marijuana, cash and a stolen .40-caliber Glock pistol from his car, they said.
The Highway Patrol charged Singleton on Wednesday, and he is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
