KERSHAW COUNTY SHERIFF REPORTS:
At approximately 2:45am on October 28, 2016 a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrested Justin Matthew Littlejohn (26) who lives on Wildwood Lane in Elgin, SC and charged him with failure to stop for a blue light (2nd offense), assaulting a police officer while resisting arrest and receiving stolen goods after he lead the deputy on a high-speed pursuit and intentionally rammed the deputy’s patrol car.

“The deputy did an outstanding job with this incident, from the pursuit to the arrest,” said Sheriff Jim Matthews. “Littlejohn, who is well known to us, is back in jail again. Hopefully, Littlejohn’s probation for a failure to stop conviction will be revoked as a result of this situation.”

At 2:31am on October 28, 2016, a Kershaw County deputy was dispatched to the area of Vistaview Dr. in Elgin in reference to a suspicious vehicle which was reported to have hit something that had knocked a headlight out. While en route to Vistaview Dr. the deputy spotted a Jeep Grand Cherokee which was missing a headlight, approach him. The deputy turned around on the vehicle and activated his blue lights and siren.

“The deputy did an outstanding job with this incident, from the pursuit to the arrest,” said Sheriff Jim Matthews. “Littlejohn, who is well known to us, is back in jail again. Hopefully, Littlejohn’s probation for a failure to stop conviction will be revoked as a result of this situation.”

The driver of the Jeep, later identified as Littlejohn, increased his speed and fled driving down opposing lanes and running off the road several times. The pursuing deputy followed Littlejohn as he turned down a driveway. When the deputy made the turn, Littlejohn who had turned around in the driveway, rammed the front of the patrol car and continued to flee.

The deputy’s vehicle was still operable and the deputy was able to drive a short distance where he found the Jeep off the road with Littlejohn still inside. Littlejohn was ordered out of the car and placed under arrest.

Following the arrest, the deputy conducted a check on the Jeep and determined that the tag on it was stolen. Investigators are attempting to determine if the vehicle itself is stolen. Additional charges may be pending.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol was called to the scene to handle the collision between Littlejohn and the deputy. Additionally, Littlejohn will be charged by the SCHP for driving under the influence as he was extremely intoxicated.

Littlejohn has previously been arrested for malicious injury to property, grand larceny, DUI, receiving stolen goods, shoplifting, driving under suspension, petty larceny, criminal conspiracy, burglary (2nd degree), possession of marijuana, failure to stop for a blue light (for which he is currently on probation), breach of peace, public disorderly conduct and various traffic offenses.

Littlejohn is currently being detained at the Kershaw County Detention Center where he is awaiting a bond hearing. The Office of Probation, Pardon and Parole has been notified of Littlejohn’s arrest.
