Man who received settlement from sheriff's office, arrested again

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A man who received a $250,000 settlement from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office after he was assaulted by a deputy has been arrested again.

Authorities arrested 21-year-old Devante Antwan Pittman on Friday.

According to court records, he was arrested on bench warrants that were filed on Oct. 8 for failing to appear for charges on unlawful carrying of a firearm, possessing a stolen vehicle and second-degree assault and battery by mob.

It's Pittman's fourth arrest since he received a settlement from the sheriff's office for a November 2012 incident where he was assaulted by a deputy during a traffic stop.

Pittman's third arrest stemmed from an incident this past September where Pittman, who was being interviewed in a separate incident, admitted to investigators to buying a gun, which Pittman said he had been trying to sell because he was not sure of its history.

Detectives escorted Pittman to his home where authorities located a gun in Pittman's bedroom. A police report states that the serial number of the gun was partially obliterated. Police officials say a check on the gun revealed it had been stolen from a car break-in in July.

Pittman was also arrested in June at the Citadel Mall after police say he was caught with a handgun. In that incident, police say it all started when Pittman became verbally abusive with an employee at Jimmy Jazz.

The report states police arrived, and a search of Pittman uncovered a .38 revolver in his back right shorts pocket.

Pittman was also arrested in late March on charges he was in possession of a stolen vehicle and pointed a handgun at a man.
