Fairfield Deputy fired after arrest

COLUMBIA – A Fairfield County Sheriff’s Deputy was relieved of his duties last week after he was charged with domestic violence 2nd degree and public disorderly conduct.

Blake Justin Adams, 36, of Ridgeway, was arrested about 5 p.m. at 400 Princess Street in Columbia on Saturday, March 17, after he was allegedly involved in a verbal altercation with a woman that turned physical. The incident report states that Adams and the woman live together.

According to the incident report, the woman struck Adams with an open hand, then Adams struck her twice on her face with an open hand. The victim was transported to Richland Memorial Hospital. Medical personnel reported that the woman’s nose was broken and possibly her lobe.

The incident was reportedly witnessed by multiple people who provided written statements. It was reported that, while being detained, Adams became disorderly, uttering profanity in a loud and boisterous manner in a public roadway.

“We got a call on Saturday that one of our deputies, Blake Adams, was arrested for an incident at Five Points during the St. Patrick’s Day event,” Fairfield County Sheriff Will Montgomery told The Voice on Thursday, March 22. “We did an investigation and he was terminated on Tuesday night.”

Adams was taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Columbia and released on a $257.50 personal recognizance bond for disorderly conduct and a $5,000 surety bond for domestic violence.
