Assault & Battery of High and Aggravated Nature

A man was arrested this past weekend from an incident that reportedly involved gunfire late last week. The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office Sunday charged 51- year-old Duane Deidrea Hope of Queen Street, Fountain Inn with Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature. A warrant cites an investigation of Deputy Williams as indicating that on Friday, April 16th Duane Deidera Hope intentionally committed an assault on a victim by presenting a handgun and firing multiple rounds, following a verbal argument.

Duane D. Hope was released later Sunday on a $30,000 bond.
