Kershaw County deputies arrested a man and a woman Friday after the two, traveling with two children in their car, led officers on a 10 mile chase south on US 601 and in both directions on Interstate 20.
Authorities had been on the lookout for 38-year-old Becky Sullivan who was wanted on financial fraud charges. Deputies spotted her in a car in Lugoff, Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said. When officers tried to stop the car, the driver, Billy Earl Bell, 29, refused to stop and the chase ensued, Matthews said.
Re-enforcement were deployed and the white Scion was eventually forced off the road.
A database check found that Bell was a fugitive wanted by Tennessee for violating his probation. He has been charged by Kershaw County with failing to stop for a blue light, driving with a suspended license, carrying a pistol unlawfully and two counts of unlawful conduct toward a child.

Sullivan and Bell were being held in the Kershaw County Detention Center Friday night. The whereabouts of the children, and their ages, was not disclosed.
