NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Deputies arrested a man on Tuesday in North Charleston, six days after he was mistakenly released from the Al Cannon Detention Center because of a clerical error, officials say.

Major Jim Brady with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office says 28-year-old Sean DeLeon Doctor was mistakenly released after a judge's decision to revoke his bond never made it into an electronic file. As a result, Doctor was released on May 9 on a $250,000 bond.

Brady said an investigation led deputies to the Fairwind Apartments, where they made contact with Doctor. After initially refusing to exit the apartment, Doctor surrendered and was taken back to the Charleston County Detention Center.

He is facing a number of drug and weapons charges after being arrested twice in 2011 and again in late April.
