An affidavit said Bostick threatened the life of the alleged victim, who authorities said suffered bruises and scratches to her back, chest, arm and face. Arrest warrants also say the woman was choked on two other occasions, once as her son watched.

Bostick is also charged with misconduct in office for obtaining motor vehicle records under false pretenses. He is in the Lexington County jail. No other details were available and it’s not known if he has an attorney.
