Thursday, November 21, 2019
An October drive through yards with children at play greatly disturbing the peace along with a traffic hit-and-run that day was just part of the charges the Highway Patrol and Laurens County Sheriff’s Office had for a man booked around 5:00 yesterday afternoon. 32-year-old Tyriece Brushawn Grant of 110 Hill Street, Cross Hill is charged by the Highway Patrol with Traffic Hit and Run, Driving Too Fast for Conditions and Driving an Uninsured Vehicle on October 25th. The Sheriff’s Office has charged him with Breach of the Peace of a High and Aggravated Nature the same day and Threatening to Shoot the victim of the Hit and Run. Deputies also charged him with Pointing and Presenting a Weapon at a Person back in April.
Warrants citing an investigation of Highway Patrol Trooper J.M. McCord allege that on October 25th, 2019 in Laurens County Mr. Grant was Driving at a speed greater than in reasonable under the conditions, in that he was found to be the driver who was involved in a collision. He is further accused of fleeing the scene of the collision where damage was done to the vehicle of a victim without providing aid and information as required by law. After being identified as the driver involved in that wreck, McCord’s investigation indicates that Grant was found to be driving while his license was suspended for DUI on a 3rd or subsequent offence. He was also found to be driving an uninsured vehicle.
Sheriff’s Office warrants cite an investigation of Deputy Kanipe as indicating that on October 25th in Laurens County Tyriece Brushawn Grant committed Beach of Peace of the Public in an Aggravated Nature by driving a vehicle through the yards of multiple residents and towards children playing in residential yards off Quarry Road. He is further accused of threatening to shoot the victim of the vehicular Hit and Run that he was party to that day.
