David Thomley lost his bid to be Kershaw County Sheriff in Tuesday’s Republican primary and two days later filed a $2 million lawsuit against Sheriff Jim Matthews. Thomley is a former captain with the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office and the suit alleges Matthews made disparaging comments about Thomley’s investigation of a reported case of "fighting and bullying" involving several students at Camden Military Academy (CMA). The suit, obtained from the Kershaw County Clerk of Court, says Thomley was a volunteer and coach at CMA at the time and "did not participate in the investigation because it would create a conflict of interest."
