Driving Complaints Filed Against Sheriff's Office Employee

Posted: Updated:

Darlene Nix got in her car, with her young grandson, and headed for Easley, when she says a car suddenly started tailing her.

"I was scared to death," Nix said.

Nix thought maybe the driver was a police impersonator and immediately called 9-1-1.

"This car went around me really fast and swerved back in front of me and jammed the breaks on and flashed the blue lights," Nix said.

But we learned from deputies that driver was no impersonator.

He's an investigator with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies tell us he is now under investigation and could face "disciplinary action" but wouldn't specify exactly what that means.

7 On Your Side's Rachel Kent asked the sheriff's office if these complaints are taken seriously.

"Any complaint we receive no matter how we receive it whether it's a phone call an email even an anonymous complaint they are all investigated in the same manner," Lt. Michael Hildebrand, with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said.

"They are supposed to be there to protect us. And I was very upset that he was exempt from the law," Nix said.

So we took her worries directly to the Sheriff's Office.

"We at the sheriff's office hold our deputies to a higher standard we expect them to follow all laws and policies," Hildebrand said.

Nix hopes that's true because she wants to have faith that those sworn to serve and protect, are doing exactly that.
