A star of the short-lived History Channel series “Hatfields & McCoys: White Lightening” has been arrested in Logan County.
James Bradley Quick, 55, of Chapmanville, W.Va. was arrested Nov. 10.
Quick played the role of Jim Hatfield on the scripted reality show which ran for a year on the History Channel.
Quick’s wife and mother also reportedly took roles on the program.
Trooper First Class T.D. Boggs, with the West Virginia State Police, reports he was dispatched to the Peach Creek area of Logan County in reference to a violation of a personal protection order.
Upon arrival, Boggs was reportedly met by the victim who explained they obtained a proactive personal protection order against Quick who is their landlord.
The victim alleged that, after the personal safety order was served, Quick came to their residence and began acting aggressively.
The criminal complaint filed by Boggs explains, “[The victim] stated that [Quick] threatened them with physical harm.”
Boggs reports he was able to confirm with Deputy Lyall, with the Logan County Sheriff’s Department, that Quick had indeed been served with the personal safety order and knew he was not to be around the victims.
Based on his investigation, Boggs placed Quick under a warrantless arrest Nov. 10.
The same day, Quick was arraigned in Logan County Magistrate Court and is charged with misdemeanor counts of violating a personal safety order and assault.
If he is found guilty on both charges, Quick could be forced to spend up to 1.5 years in a state correctional facility and pay up to $3,100 in fines.
Bond was set to $2,500 in Logan County Magistrate Court.
