A Holly Hill woman accused her estranged husband of brandishing a firearm and threatening her in the Orangeburg County Courthouse parking lot after a family court hearing Tuesday morning, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The woman said he threatened to assault her and burn her house down.

He also allegedly lifted the front of his shirt to show her a black, semi-automatic Glock pistol in his waistband while continuing his threats.

The woman and her brother left in a vehicle.

She said her estranged husband began to follow them before stopping his pursuit, the report states.

In a separate incident, a van belonging to Jerusalem United Methodist Church in Santee was vandalized earlier this week.

The side window of the 1999 white Ford van was broken but the vehicle did not appear to have been entered.

The damage is estimated at $400.
