A Moore County Sheriff’s Deputy who was fired from his job after being arrested on Thursday for assault has been arrested on new charges.
Tevin Martinez Caddell, 26, from the 3400 block of N.C. Highway 705 in Robbins, was arrested again on Friday evening for one count of violating domestic violence protection order. Caddell was booked at the Moore County Detention Center at 9:18 pm.
Caddell was immediately terminated from his position Thursday upon his first arrest when Moore County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a home off of Mount Carmel Road in Carthage. Upon an investigation, Caddell was charged with assault on a female, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
Caddell then violated his domestic violence protection order Friday when he failed to turn in a personal firearm, according to authorities. He has a May 22nd court date.
Sheriff Godfrey made a statement regarding the first arrest of the former deputy.
“I am disappointed every time a sad event like this occurs and disappointed that it involved one of our own,” said Sheriff Neil Godfrey. “None of us, whether in uniform or not, are above the law, and Caddell will be treated like any other defendant.”
All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
