Mayor Charged In Vehicle Incident

Posted on Sep 08, 2010
   A bond hearing for Dillon Mayor Pro-Tem Randolph Gurley has been set in connection with an attempted murder charge. The long-time city councilman allegedly tried to run over a 20-year-old man after an argument two weeks ago.

   At a prior hearing, Judge Mackie Hayes denied bond for Gurley, saying he is a danger to the community.

   Gurley is also charged with distribution of cocaine and distribution of a controlled substance near a school. According to the Dillon County Sheriff's Office, Gurley sold drugs to an undercover agent in an investigation that began in June.

   In July, the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) also charged him with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, in relation to a report filed by Gurley's wife saying he threatened her with a knife.
   He is currently being held in the Dillon County Detention Center.
