JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) -- A colonel with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has been arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office says 47-year-old Alexander Chisolm Frampton was arrested after deputies were called to his Johns Island home Sunday afternoon.

Frampton's wife told deputies said he had been arguing all day and threw and broke numerous items in the house. Authorities say she also said she had been kicked by her husband and feared for her safety.

Frampton is being held in the Charleston County jail. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
