CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) - The Carolina Beach Police Officer accusing town council member Dan Wilcox of shoving him has been placed on administrative leave.
According to Chief William Younginer, officer Darrell Collins was placed on paid administrative leave earlier this week.
He says the issue is a personnel matter and is not related to the altercation with Wilcox that took place in November.
Council member Dan Wilcox turned himself in to police on Thanksgiving Day on charges of simple assault, communicating threats and stalking Carolina Beach Police Officer Darrell Collins.
The warrant indicates, Wilcox pushed Collins, followed him and then threatened him. It goes on to state that Collins believed that the threat would be carried out.
The chief will review the personnel issue and make a decision on Collins' future within the next few weeks.
