  Original Published: 8/22/2013Richland County Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Frazier has been placed on paid administrative leave. He was escorted out of the sheriff's department Wednesday afternoon, following a citizen complaint of excessive use of force during a call to the man's home Sunday night. The resident claimed Frazier forced him to the floor, slapped him, and handcuffed him, although he was not arrested. Sheriff's Major Dale Fortney says the incident is still being investigated for possible violations of standard operating procedures, and if Frazier did violate policy, a disciplinary hearing would be scheduled.
