NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A Charleston County Sheriff's Deputy was arrested early Saturday morning for criminal domestic violence in North Charleston.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office says 35-year-old Demetrius Sansom was arrested by North Charleston Police after officers were called out a home in the 4700 block of Lambs Road.

Sansom was arrested and taken to the Charleston County Detention Center pending a bond hearing.

Deputies say Sansom was an employee at the detention center until his transition as a deputy sheriff occurred 3 months ago.

Authorities say Sansom was still in training status and has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
