Dillon County Deputy Charged With Suspect Assault
DILLON, S.C. (AP) — A Dillon County sheriff’s deputy has been arrested after authorities say he assaulted a suspect who was handcuffed.
The State Law Enforcement Division says 48-year-old Ken Carlisle Rogers was arrested Friday and charged with misconduct and second-degree assault and battery.
Authorities say Rogers was responding to an assault call last month when he used pepper spray and a stun gun on a suspect who was handcuffed and shackled. Police say Rogers also slapped the suspect in the face.
It wasn’t known if Rogers had an attorney.
