Cheyenne Nicole Collier

(Walhalla, SC)-------------------------------------An Oconee County woman, who led an Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Deputy on a recent pursuit into Georgia, was transported back to Oconee County to face charges in the incident.

 

23 year old Cheyenne Nicole Collier, who has listed addresses in West Union and Salem, was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center at around 4:40pm Wednesday.  Collier was transported from the Franklin County Detention Center back to Oconee County yesterday.

 

Collier remains in jail, at this time, pending a bond hearing.  Collier was charged in the February 20th pursuit with one count each of Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature, Resisting Arrest, Failure to stop for a Blue Light, Reckless Driving and Driving under Suspension.

 

Collier was also served with a General Sessions Bench Warrant and with a Magistrate Bench Warrant from the city of Walhalla.

 

According to a Sheriff’s Office news release from February 21st, a Deputy from the Uniform Patrol Division, on routine patrol on W. Bennett Road near Westminster the evening of February 20th, observed a dark blue Scion with a Georgia tag that had a license plate cover over the tag.  Based upon the traffic violation, as well as the Deputy having evidence to believe that the vehicle had left the scene of a shoplifting that occurred at a business in the city of Westminster the previous afternoon, the Deputy initiated a traffic stop.

 

The driver of the vehicle pulled over on W. Bennett Road.  The Deputy spoke to and identified the female driver as Moore.  A check with dispatch revealed that the license of the driver was suspended and that she had a General Sessions Bench Warrant for Possession of Methamphetamine and a Magistrate Bench Warrant from the city of Walhalla.

 

The Deputy advised Moore that she was under arrest.  While attempting to place her under arrest, Moore placed her vehicle in drive and drove off, almost dragging the Deputy with the vehicle.  The Deputy returned to his vehicle and informed Dispatch that he was in pursuit of the vehicle. 


The Deputy did activate his Digital Siren device inside of his vehicle.       

 

The Deputy followed Moore from W. Bennett Road to Plant Road to Mountain Road and then onto S. Highway 11.  Heading southbound, Moore entered I-85 southbound from Highway 11 and proceeded to cross into the state of Georgia. 

 

Moore then exited off I-85 southbound at exit 173, which is Georgia Highway 17.  The pursuit ended on Arlington Drive in Lavonia.  Moore ran from the vehicle but was taken into custody without incident.

 

Custody of Moore, and her vehicle, was transferred to the Georgia State Patrol.  At that time, a hold was placed on Moore by the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office. 

 

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.
