An Aiken man arrested for disorderly conduct allegedly spit on an officer, tried to head-butt another officer and threatened to kill the families of officers at the jail, according to the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office.


Robert Bernard McBrayer, 29, of Gun Range Road, was charged with disorderly conduct after officers responded to a disturbance on Durden Road in Warrenville, according to a sheriff’s report. He became combative after officers placed him into a patrol car, kicking the car’s windows and banging his head into the windows.


McBrayer spit on an officer when they stopped to put him into hobble restraints, police said. Once at the Aiken County detention center, McBrayer allegedly tried to head-butt a deputy and threatened the life of another deputy and “all deputies around him.”


McBrayer was later charged with third-degree assault and battery, throwing bodily fluids on a law enforcement officer and threatening the life of a public official.


He said he “would go online” and find the addresses of officers at the jail, go to their homes and “kill their family,” the report stated.
