Moncks Corner, SC -

It happened back on August 19th and after taking a look at the video from the incident the Sheriff's Office decided to get South Carolina Law Enforcement involved.

 It's alleged the incident occurred when Officer Thomas Justin Mims, 28 was escorting inmate Anthony Ray Williams.

 It was around 5am when investigators say Mims shoved Williams in the back then pushed Williams up against the wall.

The video shows, even while Williams still had both hands on a tub he was carrying, investigators say he punched Anthony Williams in the face and he was taken to the ground and restrained once another officer came through the door.

Court papers say the incident, that included witness testimony appeared unnecessary and excessive and constituted an assault.

 Thomas Justin Mims who no longer works for the BCDC is charged with assault and Battery 3rd Degree.
