The former executive director for the South Carolina GOP, “family values” adherent, and famously sociopathic Twitter provocateur Todd Kincannon has been arrested on domestic violence charges.
Kincannon was arrested today in connection to an altercation last month where he physically threatened his wife Ashley Griffith. Griffith claims in the police report that the March incident was nothing new and not simply a result of Kincannon having a bad reaction to medication.
Kincannon, according to the incident report, began speeding through traffic, but eventually stopped the car at the Chick-Fil-A on Harbison Boulevard. Griffith told deputies that she tried to exit the vehicle in the parking lot, but Kincannon grabbed Griffith’s arm in order to prevent her from leaving.
At that point, according to the incident report, Griffith began to hit Kincannon until he sped up the car in an effort to prevent her from leaving the vehicle. The report continues, and says Griffith then dialed 911 so the dispatcher could hear Kincannon. A short time later, the report says, Kincannon saw a patrol car and “freaked out.” Kincannon then told Griffith that he would drive their car into a concrete barrier if the police got involved, the report says.
Kincannon, according to the report, had also threatened to kill himself, Griffith, and her family. The report says Griffith told deputies she has several recorded threats of suicide and homicide from Kincannon.
He is being held on $5,0000 bond.
