Officers were called earlier in January to Gibson Avenue in Surfside Beach for a domestic violence call in progress. During the 911 call, the operator was able to hear Freer yelling in the background and making death threats at the victim, according to the police report.

The victim told officers she was inside her car with Freer in the parking lot of the Little Caesars in Surfside Beach when Freer grabbed her wrist, twisted her arm and threatened to break it.

The police report shows that the victim still ended up going home with Freer and the argument escalated.

The victim said she called 911, and during that call the operator advised Freer that the call was being recorded and he said he didn’t care.

Officers said they saw red marks on the victim’s wrist and it was swollen.

Freer is charged with domestic violence in the first-degree. He’s 42 years old with a last known address of Gibson Avenue in Surfside Beach.
