SPARTANBURG, S.C. -
Two people are facing charges Friday morning after a chase through Spartanburg County at speeds over 100 miles per hour.

Angela McClure, 28, and Ernest McCumber, 28, were arrested after the pursuit that started near Chesnee around 11:00 p.m. and ended in Greer.

A Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputy says he saw McClure and McCumber in a car leave the home of "a known drug location" according to the incident report. 

He began to follow their car and attempted to pull the driver over for making a right turn without signaling onto Anderson Road. That deputy then backed off the pursuit after losing sight of the suspects.

Another deputy spotted the vehicle again and the chase continued on several roads - including Interstate 85 - before ending on Kist Road in Greer.

Authorities used stop sticks several times, eventually stopping the vehicle after after a chase that went 30 miles.

McClure - the driver- faces charges that include a blue light violation, open container of alcohol and an uninsured vehicle. She has a bond hearing scheduled for 5:00 p.m. Friday. A check of state law enforcement records show McClure was arrested for shoplifting in Spartanburg in November, 2013.

McCumber faces two criminal domestic violence charges. He bonded out of the Spartanburg County Detention Center Friday morning. He has an arrest record from SLED that dates back to 2003.
