Aiken state representative jailed on domestic violence charge

Chris Corley, a Republican who represents Graniteville in the state's House of Representatives, was charged with first degree domestic violence and pointing and presenting firearms to a person after being arrested by the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

State representative Christopher Corley, R-Aiken, was arrested on charges of domestic violence and pointing a weapon Tuesday.

Because of the violent nature of his crimes, Corley may be removed from his position as lawmaker for the county of Aiken.

According to an incident report, Corley and a woman got into an argument and Corley hit the woman causing her to bleed.

Corley threatened to kill himself and then went into the bedroom, the report stated. He claims that he tried to push her off and she ended up scratching him on the forehead.

Hawai'i Bowl Fake Punt: Hawai'i vs Middle Tennessee
This Hawai'i fake punt looked like something a coach came up with after having one too many Blue Hawai'is on Waikiki Beach. It would appear Rolovich has his program headed in the right direction after winning its first bowl game in a decade.

Meantime, South Carolina House Speaker Jay Lucas says he has heard about the arrest and will take action if Corley is indicted.

Abdullah said the victim is "fine", and with family members.

Corley was first elected to the SC house in 2014, according to prior reports. "Because the matter is still under investigation, further inquiries should be directed to the Second Circuit Solicitor's Office", said spokeswoman Caroline Delleney. A message left at his home wasn't immediately returned.

S.C. GOP Chairman Matt Moore said, "I trust the legal system to deal with these disturbing charges against Rep. Corley in a timely manner". Corley also proposed a statewide referendum on whether the Confederate flag should fly in front of the Statehouse. Reach her at 803-644-2395.
