The U.S. Marshals Service Task Force has arrested an Orangeburg man accused of assaulting his girlfriend.
Michael Bryan Gadson, 25, of 120 Crosby St, is facing a charge of criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. He was arrested as he was walking through a North Charleston neighborhood on Friday.
Officials claim Gadson assaulted the woman with his hands on April 21 by punching her in the face, causing a black eye and bloody nose.
Gadson pointed a shotgun at the victim and ordered her to get into the bathtub, and then threatened her life several times, according to an Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
“On Oct. 31, Gadson threw a table at the same victim. He was arrested in February on a charge of criminal domestic violence, first offense and was out on $2,130 bond,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said.
He said, “Our agency is committed to working with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, task forces and any other available resources to arrest criminals and bring them back to this county to have their day in court.
“The Marshals Service’s Task Force has produced favorable results and we continue to applaud Marshal Kelvin Washington for his leadership.”
