Lincoln County Deputy Arrested, Charged In TBI Domestic Assault Case
At the request of 17th District Attorney General Robert J. Carter, TBI Special Agents began investigating Timothy Alan Moorehead on Tuesday, soon after the Sheriff’s Department learned of an allegation of domestic violence involving the 34-year-old. During the course of the TBI investigation, Agents developed information that Moorehead and his wife were involved in a physical altercation at their Petersburg home on Friday, May 16th, which left visible injuries on the woman.
Agents arrested Moorehead without incident on Tuesday evening and charged him with one count of Domestic Assault. The department subsequently terminated his employment. Wednesday morning, Moorehead posted $1,500 bond and was released.
