Hamilton was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under no bond. Police did not provide any other details.
Hamilton has no known prior criminal conviction record, based on a search of the N.C. Department of Corrections. Hamilton’s first court appearance will be Friday, an arrest warrant said.
