CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A colonel with the Department of Natural Resources is back at work after a domestic violence charged against him was dropped.

A DNR spokesman told The Post and Courier of Charleston that the agency director reviewed the November incident involving Chisolm Frampton and his wife and determined Frampton should be reinstated.

Charleston County sheriff's deputies say they were called to Frampton's home after his wife said he threw and broke numerous items in the house and she feared for her safety.

Prosecutors say Frampton's wife agreed to drop the charge after he decided to get individual and marital counseling.

Frampton has been head of DNR's law enforcement division for 20 years.
