Sheriff: Suspect pointed shotgun at girlfriend, ordered her into bath tub | Crime
The Marshal Service Task Force arrested an Orangeburg man in North Charleston they say was wanted for assaulting his girlfriend in Orangeburg County.
According to Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, 25-year-old Michael Bryan Gadson was arrested without incident in North Charleston on Friday by the U.S. Marshal Service Task Force.
The report said Gadson was wanted after an April 21 incident on Crosby Street, where he pointed a shotgun at the victim and ordered her to get into the bath tub. Gadson then threatened the female’s life several times, the report stated.
When officers arrived to the address just after 3 a.m., they observed the female victim with bruises and swelling to her face.
Deputies also say on October 31, Gadson threw a table at the same victim. Gadson was arrested in February on a charge of criminal domestic violence, and since it was his first offense he was released on $2,130 bond.
Ravenell concludes “Our agency is committed to working with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, task forces, and any other available resources to arrest criminals and bring them back to this county to have their day in court. The Marshal Service’s Task Force has produced favorable results and we continue to applaud Marshal Kelvin Washington for his leadership.”
