R.S. Mahaley of the Sheriff’s Office made the arrest Friday. McRae was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $500,000 bond.
On a lighter note, Deputy C.A. Trexler of the Sheriff’s Office charged Dennis James Hunsucker, 59, of Orphanage Road, Rockwell, with driving while impaired on his bicycle late Saturday morning.
The arrest was made about 11 a.m. in the 5000 block of Bringle Ferry Road near Beagle Club Road. Taylor also charged Hunsucker with communicating threats after he was detained.
