Jes' Call Him Br'er Rabbit

"Rock Hill police chase ends in briar patch."

Rock Hill man accused of stealing from BiLo led police on a chase through a briar patch before a police officer stunned him with a Taser and put him in cuffs on Sunday.

Roderick Whitlock, 30, of 195 Porter Road is charged with shoplifting and resisting police, according to a Rock Hill Police report. He’s since been released from jail on a $2,000 bond.

Sometime after 5:30 p.m., police circulated the area of Firetower Road and East Main Street after receiving word that someone stole a beard trimmer and then headed toward a nearby carwash, the report states. A man washing his car told police he saw Roderick run behind the car wash.

That’s when Roderick led police on a chase through the carwash and toward an industrial building. When officers cornered him, Roderick “entered” a briar patch, the report states.

Br'er Rabbit weren't countin' on ol' Br'er Bear havin' a Taser, so bimeby dey drug ol' Br'er rabbit on outen o' de briar patch.
