[Excerpts] Officials at J. Reuben Long Detention Center have launched an internal investigation related to a jailer who was charged with criminal domestic violence. Detention Center Director Tom Fox confirmed that an investigation of Nicolas Dale Trevathan, 22, began Monday, a day after police arrested and charged Trevathan... Trevathan was booked at the jail early Sunday, according to the jail's Web site. He was released at 10 a.m. Sunday on $1,000 bail... Horry County police arrested Trevathan after someone made a 911 call at 1:50 a.m. Sunday from Myrtle Greens Apartment complex, according to an incident report. Police said officers heard a woman and man inside an apartment, but 911 dispatchers could not get anyone to answer the phone. Before officers left the complex, an officer in his patrol car outside the building was struck by a vehicle driven by Trevathan, who tried to back out of a parking spot, police said. The officer, who was not injured, took Trevathan into investigative custody after smelling a strong odor of alcohol coming from him, according to an incident report. A woman, who was crying, came from the apartment building and told police Trevathan was her husband, but they had been separated for several months, police said. The woman said Trevathan had assaulted her and she called 911. Police also noted that the front door to the apartment had been forced open.

[Excerpts] ...Horry County hired Trevathan to work as a correctional officer at the county jail about ten months ago, J. Reuben Long jail director Tom Fox said. The county will conduct an internal investigation into the Sunday morning incident, then determine Trevathan’s employment status, Fox said. A county judge set Trevathan’s bond at $1,000 and released him on a PR bond at a hearing Sunday morning. Surfside Beach Police charged Trevathan with shoplifting in November 2003, but judge Dennis Earl Phipps found him not guilty at a bench trial on June 14, 2004, according to a check with county records. Trevathan’s charges will be heard by the county’s criminal domestic violence court. No word yet on a trial date on Trevathan’s charge. [Full article here]
