Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies arrested a Camden man Sunday and were still searching Tuesday for a Columbia man for allegedly pulling a gun on a woman at a Ballfield Road, Camden, apartment.

Deputies arrested Michael Anthony Feazell, 26, of Kershaw Highway, Camden. They are seeking the whereabouts of Alvin Jerome Wise, 29, of Columbia.

According to a KCSO report, the 40-year-old victim said a man she knows as “Bookie” -- later identified as Wise -- pulled a gun on her during an argument. She said Wise left in a black Lexus with gold trim toward a nearby apartment complex. She said Wise returned on foot a short time later and pointed the gun at her again, but then ran off with a man later identified as Feazell as the deputy arrived.

The deputy located Feazell and another man who turned out to be an 18-year-old who had just been released on bond following Thursday’s drug raid on Gardner Street. The deputy handcuffed and searched both men, and found Feazell in possession of a .38 caliber handgun with six cartridges, two of which had been fired. The deputy also found Feazell in possession of three clear plastic bags containing crack cocaine and another bag with marijuana.

The woman confirmed Feazell was in possession of the handgun Wise had pointed at her. Feazell claimed he had just walked up to the apartment complex when Wise came running up to him and gave him the gun. He also claimed Wise gave him the keys to a Lexus before running off to another apartment complex.

The deputy located the Lexus and determined it had been driven recently. A witness said he saw at least one man run into the parking lot and get into a light colored car..

Wise called the victim several times while she was writing a statement for the deputy. He reportedly said he was halfway to Columbia and wanted to know why she had called law enforcement. Other witnesses reported knowing the identity of the man in whose car Wise had reportedly left.

Deputies took Feazell to the Kershaw County Detention Center where he was charged with possession with intent to distribute (PWID) crack cocaine and PWID crack cocaine within proximity of a park, unlawful possession of a weapon and simple possession of marijuana.

Deputies indicated Wise will be charged with pointing and presenting a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Authorities described Wise as African-American, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 130 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He reportedly has scars all over his body.

Anyone with information regarding Wise’s whereabouts is asked to call KCSO investigators at 425-1512.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of April 20 - May 1:

A traffic stop turned into a drug case after a deputy tried to pull over a 20-year-old Elgin man for having faulty tag lamps. The suspect responded by taking off at high speed up Sessions Road, ignoring commands to stop until reaching an Old Farm Road residence where he threw money, marijuana and a cigar-type box out of the car. He then struck a marker post, entered the driveway, tried to get out of the vehicle and was taken down by a deputy who recovered the drugs and $44. The box contained loose and bagged marijuana. A woman determined to be the owner of the vehicle asked for EMS because she was having an asthma attack. Deputies noted the car had been pulled over about a month earlier with different suspects found with cocaine and alcohol. Deputies warned the owner to be more careful about whom she allowed to drive her vehicle. Deputies charged the suspect with simple possession of marijuana, driving under suspension, littering, being a minor in possession of alcohol (a cooler full of beer was found in the truck bed) and failure to stop for blue lights and siren.

For the second time in 30 days, KCSO narcotics agents raided a Lockhart Road, Kershaw, home and recovered drugs and drug equipment. Agents arrested one man and were seeking another at the time the report was written. Agents went to the home in response to complaints of a man selling drugs, including prescription pills. The man was also wanted on bench warrants, and agents checked on several homes in the area before being informed that he sometimes stays with his brother. They went to the Lockhart Road address and found the man’s 21-year-old brother, who admitted to smoking up to a quarter pound of marijuana a week and was addicted to pills. Agents spotted a partially smoked marijuana cigar on the back porch. The 21-year-old called his brother who claimed he was on his way, but never showed up. The younger man also admitted to having about an ounce of marijuana inside the home. After he waived his Miranda rights and consented to a search of the home, agents found a digital scale, smoking pipe with burnt material inside, 29 grams of marijuana inside a baggie, two and a half Xanax pills, one Adderall pill, 39 pills of Conazepam, a metal marijuana grinder, three boxes of distribution baggies and six more small distribution bags. Deputies arrested the 21-year-old for simple possession of marijuana and possession of Schedule II and Schedule IV narcotics.

The victim said the 17-year-old jumped on him and started beating him while he was sleeping. EMS took the victim to KershawHealth where he was airlifted to a Columbia hospital. Deputies located the suspects at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Cassatt Road where they appeared to be intoxicated. The 17-year-old admitted to fighting with the victim and had blood on his hands and clothes. It was unclear what role the older suspect played. Both men were later released on bond.

Deputies arrested a 22-year-old Lugoff man after he was caught fleeing the scene of a burglary at a Thrush Lane, Lugoff, heating and air conditioning business.

A 46-year-old Camden man allegedly assaulted pulled a knife on his wife and knocked down her cousin with his SUV Saturday.

According to a Camden Police Department (CPD) report, a KCSO deputy had just left the Kershaw County Detention Center on Bramblewood Plantation Road when he saw the cousin on the ground and the man flee on foot into the woods.

The man’s wife told officers she was driving north on U.S. 521 when she and her husband began arguing. She said she remembered the S.C. Highway Patrol maintained an office on Ehrenclou Drive and turned to go there. After doing so, she said, her husband grabbed her by the hair, pulled a knife, held it to her throat and threatened to kill her. She said she pulled onto Bramblewood Plantation Road, jumped out of the SUV and ran into the woods to get away from him, leaving her 2-year-old grandson and her cousin in the vehicle.

That woman told officers her cousin’s husband then got into the driver’s seat at which point she got out in an attempt to get the toddler out of the vehicle. She said the suspect then drove off, knocking her to the ground. That was when the deputy showed up, leading to the man fleeing on foot.

A KCSO K-9 unit was brought to the scene but was unable to find him. Both women suffered injuries, but refused medical treatment. In a supplement to the original incident report, the reporting officer noted the man’s wife called back and said she wanted to drop the charges against her husband.
