ST. GEORGE, S.C. (AP) - A prosecutor says Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet is expected to turn himself in on a charge of misconduct in office.

Multiple media outlets report that prosecutor David Pascoe said the State Law Enforcement Division issued a warrant against Nisbet for an incident in Summerville last month.

Pascoe said Nisbet is expected to turn himself in Friday. It was not clear if he has a lawyer.

The charge stems from an incident between Nisbet and his neighbor in which Summerville police said Nisbet pulled a gun on the neighbor Aug. 25.

Summerville police say the coroner said a neighbor, Leroy Fulton, had pulled a gun on a repossession worker.

Nisbet had requested a SLED investigation of the incident.

Misconduct in office carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
