Embattled Officer Accused of Threats, Stalking and Harassment in Complaint

web posted June 30, 2014

EDGEFIELD A Johnston Police Officer that was relieved of duty on Sunday, June 22, is now being accused of making threats, harassment, and even breaking into the home of the mother of his child. The woman said the couple split up weeks ago and he has placed her in fear for her and her child's life.

In an incident report released on Friday, the woman says the officer would come to her home and keep his "hand on his gun" the entire time he was there. She claims he has come to her work in his patrol car and turning on his blue lights to let her know he was there as well as coming inside.

Between June 18 and June 21, one day before his being relieved of duty, he texted her at least 215 times recounting his "reoccurring nightmare" of him standing over her dead and bloodied body and then looking in the mirror to see himself covered in blood and then him "slitting his throat". According to her, he said that it would become a reality - "then it would all be over".

The woman claimed the officer entered her house on June 19 while no one was home. As evidence she stated that her son's bedroom door was opened when she came home although it had been closed before she left. A curtain in the hall was also opened, but had been closed before her leaving. She stated that her front door was opened and unlocked when she arrived and that it could only be unlocked from the inside, "because he had broken it before", the report states.

The woman told the deputy that the officer knew how to "play the system" because he "was a cop" and believed he would do so to his advantage in order to carry out the threats.

It is unknown if a criminal investigation is underway or if formal charges may be sought. However, the Sheriff's Victim's Advocate assisted the woman in filing for an order of protection at the Clerk of Court's Office for Family Court.
