Altercations of threats exchanged between two parties can result in police intervention. Even if one of the parties is a police officer, the authorities may need to ascertain the situation and act accordingly, as everyone must be treated equally under the law. Recently in South Carolina, a police officer was arrested and now faces a domestic violence charge related to an incident that apparently led one individual to fear for her safety.
The incident involved a 46-year-old police officer who had worked with the police department for roughly 10 years. Reportedly, there was a verbal altercation between the man and woman, although the specific relationship between them was not disclosed. During the altercation, the police officer allegedly pulled out his gun and threatened the woman. He is also reported to have sent a text message that was threatening in nature.
