Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded Nov. 10, to Taco Bell on Dorchester Rd., in No. Charleston to a report of ongoing criminal domestic violence in the drive-thru.
A man was actively punching a female passenger while sitting in the drive-thru.
The deputy immediately responded and located Desmond George Johnson in his vehicle at the drive-thru window.
Johnson told police he had a little “scuffle” with the victim but there was no assault.
The victim and the two children who were in the backseat during the incident, declined transport and refused to press charges.
After speaking with the victim, noting her injuries and speaking with witnesses, police charged Johnson as is their mandate.
