US politician Chris Corley was arrested on felony charges of domestic violence after the children of the South Carolina lawmaker could be heard screaming "just stop, dad" on a 911 recording.

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office arrested Corley on December 27 after police said he hit his 37-year-old wife and pointed a gun at her, before threatening to kill himself, the Aiken Standard newspaper reported.

  1. It was the first 911 phone call Aiken city dispatch received on December 26 from Corley's home. "Please stop it. Just stop. Just stop... Dad, please stop," said the 911 audio recording released on Friday.
  2. "Please stop. Stop. Please stop, Chris. Just stop daddy, just stop. Chris, please stop. Daddy. Please help. Please Chris. Chris."
  3. After several attempts to get the Republican representative's wife on the phone, the dispatcher called Aiken county dispatch, saying, I had a caller, sounded like children screaming for help and begging their father to stop.
  4. A second 911 phone call was made to Aiken county dispatch by a female family member who lives across the street.
  5. There is a man threatening to kill himself, the woman told dispatch. He hit his wife and he is threatening to kill himself with the gun he has.
  6. Corley was released on a $20,000 bond and could face up to 15 years in jail if convicted of both the charges.
  7. The 36-year-old lawmaker, in the presence of an eight year old child, caused physical harm and injury to his wife, by striking her on the head and face with a closed fist and threatening to kill her, pointing a handgun at the victim causing her to fear for her life.

  9. According to Corley, he and his wife were arguing because she thought he was cheating on her. He said his wife attempted to strike him on the face with her fist, where he then pushed her off of him.
  10. The controversial attorney made headlines in 2015 for his efforts to keep the Confederate flag flying outside the South Carolina state house.
  11. The flag was removed in July 2015 after the massacre of nine people in a black church in Charleston by white supremacist Dylann Roof.
  12. During a debate on the issue last year, Corley suggested that the Confederate flag should be replaced with the white flag of surrender.
