Charleston County Sheriff’s deputies on Tuesday arrested a Hanahan man who they say violated his access to state Department of Motor Vehicles records to contact a driver he got into a dispute with in October.
Deputies charged Ernest Theodore Cammer, 69, of John Rutledge Avenue with use of confidential information by a public employee, sheriff’s Capt. Mike Stanley said.
Cammer, who is an employee with the Charleston County Auditors’ Office, got into a dispute with another driver on Oct. 3, Stanley said.
Cammer recorded that driver’s license plate number, and, according to deputies, used his access to DMV records to identify the other driver.
Cammer mailed a letter to that driver, and referenced the act of road rage, Stanley said.
That person contacted the Sheriff’s Office, Stanley said.
Cammer was taken to the Charleston County jail, where he was released on $10,000 bail, according to court records.
