(WSPA) — A Greenville County Detention Center officer is charged with attempted murder and other crimes.
Austin Taylor, 30, was arrested Tuesday morning for attempted murder, kidnapping, and domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
Greenville County sheriff’s deputies responded to St. Francis Eastside Hospital in reference Monday to a domestic violence report.
Deputies say the victim was assaulted, choked to the point of unconsciousness, and held against her will at a home.
According to documents from the Criminal Justice Academy, Taylor’s only position in law enforcement has been as a corrections officer for Greenville County since 2012.
Taylor was denied bond on the attempted murder charge and was given a combined $40,000 bond for the other two charges.
A spokesman with Greenville County said Taylor has been fired.
