CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - An assistant fire chief in Charleston has been arrested and charged with failure to stop for police.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported (https://bit.ly/1MVgAqR) that 40-year-old Christopher Michael Vanhoy was stopped earlier this month by a Hanahan officer responding to a report of a motorist possibly driving erratically.

Charleston city spokeswoman Cameron Wolfsen said Vanhoy remains on the job with the department where he has worked from 22 years.

The charge of failure to stop for police carries a sentence of between 90 days and three months in jail. It was not clear if Vanhoy has a lawyer.

A Hanahan police spokesman says the officer did not test Vanhoy for intoxication because he would not cooperate and the weather was bad.

Vanhoy was promoted to assistant chief in 2014.
