FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – The man shot by a state constable after being pulled over by Florence Police last month was charged Tuesday and released from jail minutes later.

Brandon Dominique Fludd, 28, was charged with failure to stop for a blue light, malicious injury to animals and other personal property, and driving on the wrong side of the road. He was booked into the Florence County Detention Center at 1:21 p.m. Tuesday and released at 1:38 p.m. on a $2,500 personal recognizance bond. Florence County spokesperson Lt. Mike Brandt confirmed that these charges stem from the March 24 traffic stop in Florence. The malicious injury charge comes from Fludd reportedly colliding with the bumper of a Florence Police vehicle.

Fludd and his attorney believe what happened during the traffic stop was unjust.
