Officer David Eaddy Charged with Burglary
The Florence County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Hemingway police officer over the weekend, after investigators say he entered the home of a former girlfriend, after he was told to stay away from her residence.
Booking reports show 28-year-old Hemingway officer David Eaddy was charged with second degree burglary.
Captain Mike Nunn says the incident happened Saturday afternoon, when Eaddy entered his ex-girlfriend’s home in Lake City.
Nunn says Eaddy was in uniform at the time.
Hemingway Police Chief H. Bryan Todd said Eaddy had been on the force for about ten weeks and has been placed on administrative leave without pay pending the outcome of the investigation
