The Oconee County Sheriff's Office said a West Union man was arrested Wednesday and received charges related to a domestic incident.

Deputies said they responded to reports of a domestic dispute at a residence on Burnt Tanyard Road in West Union Wednesday morning.

Upon arriving on the scene, deputies said the victim shared that 32-year-old Jamie Allen Smith of West Railroad Street came to the residence and had started removing items from the porch. The victim said an argument between the two followed, and when she tried to remove items from Smith's vehicle, he assaulted her.

Smith reportedly damaged the residence and the victim's truck during the incident, as well.

The victim told deputies she was able to get away from Smith and Smith left the area of the residence.

Shortly after Smith left the residence, deputies located a vehicle matching a description of his vehicle, and initiated a traffic stop on Burnt Tanyard Road.

During the traffic stop, reports say that deputies confirmed that Smith was driving the vehicle and his license was suspended. Deputies say Smith was then placed under arrest, charged with driving under suspension and was given a traffic ticket. Reports say that Smith was also placed on a temporary custody order until warrants could be obtained.

Thursday, Smith was charged with two counts of malicious injury to personal property and one count of domestic violence in the 3rd degree. The damage to the victim's camper and vehicle equaled to over $2,000 each.

Smith is being held at the Oconee County Detention Center on a surety bond and personal recognizance bond combined to total $12,100.
