Live 5 Most Wanted suspect arrested on Johns Island


Authorities say they have arrested 38-year-old James Keith Martin on Johns Island who was wanted on three counts of violating an order protection.

Deputies say Martin ignored a court order to stay away from his estranged wife and stop harassing her.

"Contrary to everything he's been told he continues to do it, which in my book is very unpredictable and very dangerous," said Charleston County Sheriff's Deputy Reggie Sharpe.

According to Sharpe, the court order states Martin is not allowed to contact his wife whether it's via telephone, e-mail or in person.

Martin was arrested on the same charge back in June, got out of jail.

Authorities say apparently he's refusing to move on from his marriage.

"Sometimes these types of people can be very dangerous because they won't listen to the courts and they let their emotions take over which can result in violent behavior," Sharpe said.
