COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Colleton County Sheriff's Office has charged a man with impersonating a state official after they say he impersonated a circuit court judge over the phone.

Deputies say 44-year-old Eldonis Youngblood called the Colleton County Detention Center and impersonated the Honorable Perry M. Buckner III, telling staff members to place a hold on an inmate because he had more pending warrants in the county.

The investigation began after the Solicitor's Office requested it.

Youngblood has been released on bond.
