TABOR CITY, NC (WECT) -

A man died Thursday after being taken away in an ambulance from R.C. Soles' law office in Tabor City.

Soles' secretary said Stacey Scott and Berry Scott were in the former senator's office for 30-45 minutes when Berry, 47, started complaining of chest pains and breathing problems, according to a police report.

When police arrived around 4:30 p.m., Berry was lying motionless in the waiting area.

Rescue crews performed CPR on the scene. Scott was pronounced dead at a hospital in Loris, SC, according to the Columbus County Coroner Linwood Cartrette. Cartrette said Berry died from natural causes associated with sickness and preexisting health problems.

In 2011, Stacey claimed Soles beat him with a metal pipe and threatened to shoot him.
