A South Carolina man faces numerous charges after a stolen car case in Greenville County transformed into a high-speed vehicle pursuit across several counties.

David Bruce Sanders Jr, 45, has been charged by numerous agencies with reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, neglecting to stop for lights, and receiving stolen goods, according to The State.com.

After a long chase that originated in Spartanburg County and ended in York County Friday, he told police he was running because the “Mexican drug cartels are trying to kill him,” an incident report from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office revealed.
