A Waterboro man is facing multiple charges following an incident in which he led a sheriff’s deputy on a short chase before being subdued with a Taser.

A York County sheriff’s deputy tried to stop a Ford F-150 driven by Christopher Lajoie, 23, around 10:15 p.m. Sunday on Sokokis Trail, but Lajoie refused to stop, according to Sheriff William King. Lajoie drove from the area of Sokokis Trail near the Lakeside Community Church to 2 Frank St., about a mile and a half away.

Once he stopped his truck, Lajoie refused to follow the deputy’s commands and would not submit to arrest, King said. The deputy used a Taser to subdue Lajoie.

Lajoie was charged with failure to stop for a police officer, operating without a driver’s license, operating under the influence and refusal to submit to arrest. He is being held on $1,000 bail at York County Jail and is scheduled to make an initial court appearance Monday afternoon.

King said Lajoie’s arrest happened during an especially busy Christmas weekend at the York County Jail. Between Christmas Eve and Sunday evening, 19 people were booked into jail on charges ranging from elevated aggravated assault to trafficking in scheduled drugs to failure to pay fines, according to corrections officer Lori Marks. Eight of those arrests occurred on Christmas Eve and 11 on Christmas Day. Twelve of the 19 people arrested remained in jail Monday.
