A Walterboro man was brought into the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office July 22 to be questioned about a post on his Facebook page.
“Let’s strap up and head to Hampton St.,” the man allegedly posted along with three gun emojis. In another post he allegedly wrote, “:speed this war up.”
The incident report explained that both the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office and Walterboro Police Department are on Hampton Street. Because of the recent attacks on police officers nationwide, the officer told the poster, his comments were viewed as a threat to law enforcement.
The man said he was not serious, adding that he didn’t own a gun.
