A Richmond County sheriff’s deputy has been placed on administrative leave after she was charged last month with driving under the influence.
Deputy Tiffany Lewis was placed on leave with pay pending the completion of an investigation, according to Sgt. Shane McDaniel, a spokesman for the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.
Lewis was arrested the morning of April 25 in Aiken County by South Carolina Highway Patrol and booked into the Aiken County Detention Center, according to jail records. McDaniel said Lewis, who has been with the sheriff’s office about two years, met with a sergeant in the office’s internal affairs department after 5 p.m. on the day of her arrest.
McDaniel said no other information was available Thursday night.
