Lexington County EMS worker charged with assault

March 5, 2019

West Columbia, SC - A Lexington County emergency medical services employee has been charged with assaulting a child he was attempting to restrain while on duty.


Scott Anthony Ludwig, 44, is charged with third degree assault and battery, according to an arrest warrant.


Ludwig was in the process of restraining a 7-year-old student at New Bridge Academy in West Columbia Friday when he struck the student in the face with his open right hand, the warrant said. The student was being transported for behavioral issues, according to investigators. The student was trying to bite Ludwig’s arm before Ludwig struck the student, according to the warrant. Detectives said Ludwig told them he hit the student as a reaction to being bitten.


Ludwig, a West Columbia resident, turned himself in at the Sheriff’s Department Monday afternoon. He was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center where he’ll be held until his bond hearing Tuesday.
