Radcliffe released on bond, waives extradition to South Carolina

Mark Wilson Radcliffe, who was charged last week with aggravated assault in Elbert County and is also the suspect in a bar shooting and armed robbery in South Carolina last week, was released Wednesday from the Elbert County Detention Center on $16,000 bond but has already been transferred to Anderson County to await formal arrest there.
Radcliffe, a 68-year-old Anderson resident, waived extradition and was picked up Wednesday by deputies from Anderson County, where he faces arrest warrants, including one for attempted murder, in connection with a shooting at Simons Bar & Grill on Clemson Boulevard in Anderson at approximately 12:30 a.m. Nov. 27, which injured two people in the bar.
Additionally, Abbeville County authorities are expected to charge Radcliffe in the armed robbery of a Calhoun Falls convenience store at 2:50 the same morning. The suspect was observed driving toward Elberton following that incident.
Elbert County Sheriff’s deputies and Elberton Police officers apprehended Radcliffe in the Walmart parking lot on Elbert Street at around 3:30 a.m. He was booked on a felony charge of aggravated assault on a peace officer after allegedly attempting to strike a vehicle driven by a sheriff’s deputy with his Lincoln Town Car, as well as a misdemeanor charge of failure to maintain lane.
The investigation into Radcliffe’s activities on Nov. 27 continues by the Elbert County, Abbeville County and Anderson County Sheriff’s Offices.
