NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A former New Hanover County Sheriff's deputy was in a court hearing Thursday for assaulting a woman in November.

According to investigators, 28-year-old Nick Dillon attacked his estranged wife, Adrienne Dillon, at her home in the Willows subdivision in Leland.

Dillon was arrested and charged for the incident.

He was a special deputy with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office assigned to the courthouse, but was dismissed from his duties following the off-duty assault.

Dillon's next court date will be sometime in January.
