  Police: Man charged after attempting to run over officers CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A man in South Carolina who allegedly attempted to run police officers over with his car was arrested after a car and foot chase. Police said Antonio Rivers, Jr. tried to hit them with a car early Sunday morning in Charleston after they found him sleeping inside a running car with a rifle, according to an arrest report from the North Charleston Police Department.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch, along with members of the ATF/DC Arson and Explosives Task Force, are asking for the public's help in finding a man who lit a 62-year homeless person on fire earlier this week.

Once at the scene, they saw a homeless man suffering from life-threatening thermal injuries and immediately took him to a local hospital.

After two days of battling life-threatening injuries, the victim died at the hospital on May 15. He has been identified as 62-year-old Darryl Finney.

According to MPD, an investigation revealed that the fire was intentionally set. Police shared nearby surveillance camera footage of the suspect wearing a dark gray hoodie near the scene of the crime.
