ANDERSON CO., S.C. (WSPA) – The charges against a man connected to the death of Anderson County Deputy Devin Hodges have been dropped, according to his lawyer.
37-year-old Joseph Fleming, with the Army Corp of Engineers, was charged last month with reckless homicide after Hodges’ death.
Fleming’s attorney Beattie Ashemore says he received a letter from the Lexington County Solicitor, saying the charges were dismissed.
Fleming was operating an Anderson County Sheriff’s Office boat during a training exercise when all three people on the boat were thrown into Lake Hartwell.
Deputy Hodges drowned after his lifejacket got caught on the boat’s propeller, according to the Anderson County Coroner’s Office.
