COLUMBIA — Police arrested a Columbia man Sunday on suspicion of threatening to kill a woman and trying to run her car off the road.

Columbia Police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer said Alex Killy, 27, began driving after a woman who was driving on Scott Boulevard. He tried running her off the road and said he would kill her, Stroer said.

Later, officers found him in east Columbia. When they told him to stop, he ran inside a house at 7300 E. Sunny Vale Drive, Stroer said. Five minutes later, she said, he ran out again and was arrested.

Officers arrested Killy on suspicion of domestic assault and resisting arrest.
