An Abbeville man is behind bars in Laurens County after deputies said he broke into a car and resisted arrest on Monday.

Laurens County deputies charged 36-year-old Michael Alewine with breaking into a motor vehicle, public disorderly conduct, threatening the life of a public official, resisting arrest, third-degree assault and second-degree burglary.

They said Alewine had been sought by Abbeville County deputies for questioning in connection with a domestic dispute when he was located along Riverfork Road in the Waterloo area.

Deputies said as they were looking for him along Riverfork Road, they saw an open truck door in a driveway and stopped to investigate.

After the homeowner realized his vehicle had been broken into, deputies continued to search for Alewine until he was located.

Alewine is being held at the Johnson Detention Center.
