DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Gov. Nikki Haley has appointed Alice Durr as the interim Dorchester County Coroner after Chris Nisbet resigned from the position on Tuesday. 

Haley suspended Nisbet from office on Oct. 1 following his indictment on a charge of misconduct in office. 

On Sept. 11, a judge set a $5,000 personal recognizance bond for Nisbet, who had turned himself in to authorities on the misconduct charge.

Nisbet faced that charge in connection with an incident authorities described as a "civil disturbance" during which he allegedly pulled a gun on his neighbor.
