      Dillon County deputy accused of excessive force

      The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating allegations that a Dillon County sheriff's deputy used excessive force against a suspect on July 20.

      Sheriff Major Hulon says he called in SLED to investigate after he was made aware of the incident.

      Hulon says the officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

      SLED is not releasing the deputy's name.
