A former South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper has been arrested and charged with assaulting a woman at a motel.

The Morning News of Florence reported Wednesday that State Law Enforcement Division agents arrested 36-year-old Roy Gary Hopkins of , Lake City and charged him with criminal domestic violence.

A SLED arrest warrant states Hopkins is accused of pushing a woman to the floor of a Hemingway motel several times Sunday, bruising both arms.

He was taken to the Williamsburg County jail in Kingstree. It was unclear if he had an attorney.
