The S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) arrested a Cassatt woman with third-degree domestic violence on Friday. In a press release issued just before noon Friday, SLED said troopers charged Summer Shrader Shelton, 26.

According to the press release, the Camden Police Department (CPD) made the request for SLED to investigate the case. Officials said the case will be prosecuted by the 5th Circuit Solicitor’s Office in summary court.

“It’s not unusual for us to ask SLED to investigate where there’s either a conflict of interest or where SLED has a specialization needed for the investigation,” CPD Chief Joe Floyd said during a phone call Friday.

He did not elaborate further on why the CPD asked SLED to be involved in this specific case.

According to a warrant attached to SLED’s press release, Shelton is accused of physically assaulting her estranged husband “on and about his face” causing visible injuries, including a black eye and cut on the inside of his lip. The warrant indicated Shelton and the victim previously lived together and have a child in common. The warrant also claims that Shelton admitted to the assault.

Online Kershaw County Clerk of Court records show that a judge set a personal recognizance bond at $5,000, allowing Shelton to be released following her arrest.

Shelton’s only previous charge was also filed by SLED for DUI, first offense, less than .10, stemming from an arrest in February, for which she has requested a jury trial.
