A 36-year-old state legislator had been charged with domestic violence following an argument with his wife at their Graniteville home in Aiken County on Monday, December 26.

At around 10:00 p.m., Chris Corley was reportedly having a disagreement with his wife when he punched and pushed her. When he noticed that he injured his wife and their children were screaming, Corley went to his car to get a gun and aimed it at his wife. He threatened to kill himself last, before going to their bedroom.

Corley’s wife left the house with their children and went to her mother’s after reporting the incident. According to Aiken County Jail, Corley is facing multiple charges, including first-degree domestic violence and pointing a firearm at a person. He was given a $20,000 bond and was prohibited from getting in touch with the victim. He posted bond one day later and will appear in court in February next year.
