SHALLOTTE, NC (WWAY) -- Former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett is back in the news.
According to a Shallotte Police report a customer at Jones Ford, where Hewett is a salesman, claims the former lawman threatened him and showed a closed fist.
Robert Miller said he took a car for a test drive and was running late. He told police when he got back, Hewett threatened him.
Hewett denied that, but said he told Miller not to come back. He told police it was the third or fourth time Miller had taken a car for a joy ride.
So far no charges have been filed.
We tried to reach Hewett by phone for comment this afternoon, but he had already left work for the day.
