DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Bond has been set for a man arrested on Thursday morning after threatening deputies following a reported sexual assault.

On Friday, Craig Brookshear, 35, appeared before a judge where he received a $30,000 surety bond for Criminal Sexual Assault and a $10,000 surety bond for Threatening a Public Official, according to Dorchester County Sheriff's Office Maj. Tony Phinney.

On June 7, Brookshear was arrested after a woman said she had been sexually assaulted on at a residence on Thelma Drive, Phinney said.

When deputies approached the house, Brookshear threatened to shoot law enforcement, Phinney said.

Once arrest and search warrants were obtained, the DCSO special entry team served them and two people in the house were arrested, Phinney said.

Timothy Nadeau, who was also at the scene, was arrested on an outstanding unrelated warrant.

Nobody was injured during the incident.
