CLOVER, SC (WBTV) - A Clover police officer was arrested and charged with domestic violence Thursday.

Aaron Snelson, 28, was charged with two counts of third-degree domestic violence. The Clover Police Department confirmed that Snelson is an officer at the department.

According to the arrest warrant, Snelson pushed and held down the victim on the couch at their York County home on Nov. 17. Snelson then lunged at the victim "in a threatening manner," causing the victim to flinch, the warrant states.

On Nov. 26, Snelson pushed the victim onto a bed and started to hit the victim, but stopped when a family pet got between them, the warrant states.

"Probable cause was based on law enforcement investigation, photographs, messages and [a] victim interview," the warrant states.

There's no word on the status of Snelson's employment with the department.

Snelson's bond is set for $2,500.
