CSO DEPUTY SUSPENDED AFTER ARREST VIDEO IS SEEN BY SHERIFF, SLED ASKED TO INVESTIGATE
Earlier this afternoon (5/9/22), your KCSO drug unit was involved in making an arrest on a suspect wanted for possession with intent to distribute marijuana, failure to stop for blue lights, resisting arrest, no SC driver’s license, and child endangerment. The video appears to show one of the investigators striking the suspect with a closed fist during the arrest process.
The video was brought to the attention of Sheriff Lee Boan. After viewing the video, the sheriff made the decision to immediately suspend the investigator and request SLED to investigate the entire incident.
