No charges against York police chief in chase

Updated:

YORK, S.C. - No charges will be filed against York Police Chief Andy Robinson for his use of force after a high speed chase in April.

Channel 9's partners at The Herald of Rock Hill reported that prosecutors have decided against filing charges against Robinson.

Police dashcam video of Jacob Floyd Bailey's arrest after he was accused of stealing a car shows Robinson approaching Bailey when he is on the ground and surrounded by several officers. The video of the April 4 incident appears to show that Robinson steps on Bailey.

The State Law Enforcement Division investigated the incident and gave the results to Anderson prosecutor Chrissy Adams, who handled the case.

Adams wrote to SLED on Wednesday saying while Robinson's actions were inappropriate, they were not criminal.

Robinson says he's happy the case is over.
