CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County Probation and Parole agents have  Calvin Bernard Parrott in custody.

Parrott, 54, had been wanted for a probation violation on a charge of criminal domestic violence, first offense.

"The actual charge stems from a family dispute," said Agent Mitchell Ray. "He hurt a member of his own family. Any person that doesn't regard his own family has no regard for the community at large."

Police had been searching for Parrott since March, when he failed to report to his probation officer.

"He just basically dropped off the radar," Ray said.

Probation agents said Parrott has a history of violence and drug use.

"We would feel better if we had him in a jail cell so he would not be able to create a new victim here in Charleston County," Ray said.

Parrott was captured shortly after Live 5 News' Most Wanted segment ran Thursday night.
