ORANGEBURG, S.C. -

An Orangeburg businessman is facing criminal charges after a deputy says he angrily threatened the local sheriff.

A bond hearing was scheduled Saturday for 54-year-old Randall Dale Gregory. Authorities say he was arrested Friday for comments he made to a deputy on Wednesday threatening Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell. Gregory is charged with threatening the life of a public employee and making a bomb threat.

A sheriff's office statement says a deputy spoke to Gregory while responding to a report that batteries and tires had been stolen from vehicles at his auto shop. Deputies say Gregory threatened to shoot Sheriff Ravenell if he was ever on the auto shop's property, and also threaten to drive a tank to the sheriff's office building and blow it up.
