A 51-year-old Camden High School JROTC instructor has been suspended from his job after being charged with “pointing and presenting” a firearm at a 12-year-old boy.
The instructor, Timothy Loren Webb, was arrested Jan. 19, said his lawyer, Deborah Butcher of Camden. He is free on a $5,000 bond.
The charge arose from a Dec. 20 incident involving a neighbor’s dog and the 12-year-old son of one of Webb’s neighbors in a gated Kershaw County community near Lugoff, according to an incident report.
The dog had been barking at Webb, the report said.
“The minor stated that when he went to the edge of the yard to get the dog that Webb pointed a gun at the dog and then at him, and stated that Webb told him that if the dog comes on my property that he would shoot him,” the incident report said.
