A domestic incident at a South Carolina Chick-fil-A drive-thru turned into a manhunt, according to multiple reports.

The Simpsonville Police responded to the Chick-fil-A on Fairview Road, where witnesses said a domestic violence incident occurred in the drive-thru, according to foxcarolina.com.
The man allegedly assaulted a woman inside of a vehicle, and she fell out of the vehicle during the altercation.
A Greenville Sheriff’s deputy, also in line at the drive-thru, witnessed the incident and attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the suspect drove away, foxcarolina.com reported.
Deputies pursued the suspect before he crashed his vehicle and fled into nearby woods on foot, according to foxcarolina.com.
Roads were blocked off, a K9 unit was called in, and nearby Plain Elementary School was on a partial lockdown during the manhunt, foxcarolina.com reported.
The man described as wearing blue jeans and a camouflage shirt was caught and taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies, before being turned over to Simpsonville police, who will lead the case, according to wspa.com.
