Quick will be held without bond until a hearing can be scheduled with a judge next week, according to police.

Quick is already facing several charges in Richmond County, including assault on a female and fleeing to elude arrest, along with driving while impaired and other traffic-related charges, according to online court records.

Quick has no prior convictions in North Carolina.
