Catherine Templeton’s son arrested for the second time in seven months …

The son of South Carolina first district congressional candidate Catherine Templeton has been arrested by police in Mount Pleasant, S.C. and charged with first degree assault and battery.

Details of the incident which led to the arrest of Hampton Brooks Templeton, 18, of Mount Pleasant, on Tuesday (April 16, 2024) were not immediately available. As of this writing, all we know is Templeton was granted – and posted – a $30,000 surety bond set as a condition of his release.

His first court appearance in connection with the charge is scheduled for June 7, 2024.

Our media outlet has submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the Mount Pleasant police department in the hopes of obtaining additional information about the circumstances which led to Templeton’s latest arrest – and a previous arrest from September 2023.

Seven months ago, Templeton was arrested by Mount Pleasant police and charged with pointing and presenting a firearm. His bond on that charge – which was dismissed four months later – was set for $10,000.

Templeton is not just a relative of the candidate. According to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), he is on his mother’s payroll – receiving $1,126.88 in “payroll expenses” on March 27, 2024.

Templeton’s mother is the top choice of the GOP establishment to take out incumbent first district congresswoman Nancy Mace, who is being targeted for defeat because she stood against the Washington, D.C. swamp (and its uniparty leaders).

Templeton ran for governor of South Carolina in 2018 – finishing third in the GOP primary behind incumbent Henry McMaster and Upstate businessman John Warren. Prior to that, she served as director of the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) and director of the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (SCLLR) under former governor Nikki Haley.

Most recently, she served as co-founder and ex-president of U.S. Brick.

As with anyone accused of committing any crime, Templeton is considered innocent until proven guilty by our criminal justice system – or until such time as he may wish to enter some form of allocution in connection with a plea agreement with prosecutors related to any of the charges filed against him.
