Tyrell Abraham, 34, has been suspended without pay from the Dillon County Detention Center after he was arrested Wednesday by the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) on two counts of Misconduct In Office and two counts of Sex With An Inmate, according to the Detention Center Captain Johnny Sapp.

The Dillon Police Department asked SLED to investigate the allegations.

Abraham was on paid leave from the detention center, but officials say he will be suspended without pay by Wednesday afternoon.
