LUCEDALE, Miss. (AP) - A southeastern Mississippi deputy has been accused of threatening to kill a woman.

The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1LkpqPM ) reports that 31-year-old George County Lt. Bobby Daye Daffin Jr. was taken into custody Monday night on a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence by simple assault. Daffin is the head of the sheriff’s department’s narcotics division and has been released on a $1,000 bond.

In an arrest report, Jackson County deputies say they were responding to a report of domestic violence at a home in Hurley, where they arrested Daffin.

Deputies cited “redness” around the woman’s shoulder as probable cause for the arrest, saying the mark was consistent with her account of the incident.

Daffin is out on leave he had requested prior to the arrest. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
