David Addington (Spartanburg Co. Detention Center)
SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Deputies said while trying to arrest a Cowpens man who was causing a drunken disturbance, the man became aggressive and threatened to kill the arresting officer.
Spartanburg County deputies were called to Dan River Road about 3:30 p.m. Saturday about an intoxicated male who they said was staggering around, smelt of alcohol and was yelling profanities.
Deputies said while they tried to detain 49-year-old David Addington, he began cursing so loud people could hear him down the street, so they arrested him on a public disorderly conduct charge.
When trying to get Addington into his patrol car, the deputy said he continued to resist, making it difficult to get him in the back seat of the car. The arresting deputy had to physically force him into the car, according to the sheriff's office report.
Once in the car and on the way to the detention center, deputies said Addington began to yell and curse at the deputy, saying he would shoot and kill him once he got out.
Addington was also booked into the jail on resisting arrest and threatening a public employee. He was being held on bond.
