Orangeburg County, SC (WLTX) - Orangeburg County deputies arrested a man they say made threats against Sheriff Leroy Ravenell and one of his officers.

He's 54 year old Randall Dale Gregory.

Deputies responded to Gregory's business, Gregory Complete Auto, to investigate the thefts of some batteries and tires that had been stolen from vehicles at the auto shop. While the Deputy was taking the report, investigators say Gregory began making statements that "the sheriff's department is going to catch hell from him" and that "he is going to drive a tank up the Sheriff's Office and blow it up."

Investigators say he continued making threats saying that if he observes any deputy sheriff or Sheriff Leroy Ravenell on his property 'he will shoot them'.

Gregory was then arrested.
