 Medal of Valor Awarded to Richland County Sheriff's Deputy. 


On the night of July 5th 2012 around 0400 Deputy Grant was on patrol in his region doing property checks. Deputy Grant came up to a motel were he spotted a suspecious person with drugs and drug tools in his pocket and hand and acting suspecious. When the suspect spotted the deputy he moved quickly out of his truck and went to the door of the motel and started banging to get back in. Deputy Grant approached the suspect and at that time the suspect pushed and punched the deputy and a foot chase started. During the chase the suspect threw the drugs out his pocket. At that time the suspect took another swing at the deputy.The deputy tried to use the taser but failed. A fight broke out between the two less the 100 yds away from the orginal scene. The suspect was able to grap the deputies taser and use it on the deputy, The suspect then tried to reach for the deputies service weapon which failed due to a new holster the department switched to. Suspect then went back for the taser and tried to use it. The deputy in fear for his life and before the suspect could use the taser again Deputy Grant fired a multiple shots striking the suspect. The suspect died later on at the hospital. Deputy Grant would be okay. The suspect had a long history of drug abuse, robbery, assault, domestic violence.
