PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A fired New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputy has been charged with simple assault.

The Pender County Clerk of Court’s office says Reed Roberts was served Friday for an offense that happened Thursday, according to court records.

Friday Sheriff Ed McMahon fired Roberts a day after Roberts allegedly fired his Taser at a utility worker who had come to Roberts’s home in Pender County to restore electrical service.

Roberts is due back in court Dec. 10.
