S.C. Deputy Strikes Inmate 25 Times in Video

August 10, 2010  | 

The S.C. State Law Enforcement Division and the FBI are investigating the beating of an inmate at the Kershaw County Detention Center, which resulted in the firing of one sheriff's deputy.

The inmate, Charles Edwin Shelley, 38, was struck several times Thursday around his shins by Sgt. Oddie Tribble Jr., said Capt. David Thomley of the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department. Tribble, a 12-year veteran of the force, was fired Friday, Thomley said.

Tribble hit the inmate at least 25 times with a baton, according to a video of the beating released by SLED through a Freedom of Information request. The video footage is from two security cameras outside a carport where officers drop off inmates to be booked at the detention center.
 
Shelley remained in the Kershaw County Detention Center on Monday on charges of driving on a suspended license and giving false information to a police officer, Thomley said. He suffered a leg fracture, cuts and bruises, said SLED Chief Reggie Lloyd.
