Shooting suspect told trooper he could not go back to jail

An incident report from the state Department of Public Safety reveals new details in the minutes before a shooting at a bank parking lot in Five Points.

According to the report, 41-year-old Scott Parker Hanson was stopped by a Highway Patrol trooper for a speeding violation on Highway 277 on Tuesday.

The trooper who pulled Hanson said he smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the car as he approached it. An incident report says when he was questioned about the smell, Hanson told the trooper he could not go back to jail and sped away from the scene.

A background check in the state of South Carolina revealed Hanson does not have a criminal record.

DPS says Hanson took troopers on a chase down the highway and onto Interstate 20 before coming to a stop at the Wells Fargo on Saluda Avenue near Blossom Street.

Officials say Hanson began shooting at the troopers when he exited his vehicle. Both officers returned fire, and Hanson was injured.

Hanson remains in the hospital.

While the State Law Enforcement Division is expected to deliver more charges against Hanson, DPS has charged him with speeding and failure to stop for a blue light.
