Deputy Suspended From Duty


A Pamlico County deputy is suspended from duty and facing charges of assault.

Pamlico County Sheriff Billy Sawyer says that 13-year veteran Dwayne Cobb was arrested and charged after an SBI investigation into a complaint filed by Cobb's girlfriend, 30-year-old Pauline Armstrong.

Court calendars show Cobb is facing a charge of misdemeanor assault on a female.

Pauline Armstrong is also facing criminal charges. Armstrong was arrested and charged with assault for pointing a gun at the 38 year-old Cobb. Sheriff Sawyer says that handgun was Deputy Cobb's service pistol.

Cobb has been suspended pending the outcome of his trial which is set for November 13th.

    So, do any of Y'ALL know which happened first: the gun pointing or the choking? Wouldn't you think that'd change things a little, if it was her pointing the gun first? Just something to think about. . .

    Dwayne had not right to choke his girlfriend, but that dosne't have anything to do with his professional career as a deputy. He has always been kind and friendly, he helped my daugther through a really rought time when she had to describe circumstances of a rape.

    I think the man may be in trouble for letting someone get ahold of his service weapon.

    wouldn't you go off the deep end too if someone who was supposed to love you and the children you shared beat on you and choked you

    Mike, Have you ever thought that the girlfriend might have falsely accused him. Happens all the time.

    I meant details about the arrest. Maybe she went off the deep end.

    "Deputy Suspended After Girlfriend's Arrest", there is nothing in the story about the girlfriend being arrested.
