WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The director of Columbus County Animal Control was arrested over the weekend.
According to Sheriff Jody Greene, Loretta Shipman was arrested Saturday for assault by pointing a gun. In addition, she was charged with trespassing and injury to personal property.
Shipman is being held in the Columbus County jail without bond. Sheriff Greene says that’s protocol since this is a domestic violence matter. He says she will be able to go before a judge on Monday.
