A former detention center dentist was accused of threatening to kill a woman then resisting arrest, Greenville County deputies said.
The suspect, 64-year-old Robert Stark, called the victim and said he wanted to "place a bullet in her head and cut her like a fish," deputies said.
Deputies went to serve Stark the unlawful communication warrant at his Simpsonville home on Sunday, and when they tried to arrest him, they said he tried to resist by pulling his hands away and turning away from the deputies who tried to handcuff him.
Once Stark was in handcuffs, deputies said they took him to his bedroom to get a pair of pants for him to put on, and that is when they saw a homemade tin foil smoking device that contained a small amount of marijuana.
Stark was taken to the county jail and charged with resisting arrest, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia in addition to the unlawful communications charge.
Bob Mihalic, governmental affairs coordinator at Greenville County, said Stark had a contract as a dentist for the county detention center, which has been terminated.
Stark was given a total of $5,806 bond on the four charges.
