The College’s Fire and EMS Chief Arrested For Domestic Violence

Richard Krantz Jr., the Fire and EMS Chief at the College of Charleston, was arrested Saturday, April 9 and charged with domestic violence. Police arrested Krantz at his home in Folly Beach after receiving a 911 call from a neighbor. College spokesman Mike Robertson told The Post and Courier that “due to privacy issues, we cannot comment on an internal employee matter that is ongoing.”

Krantz’s girlfriend told police that they had been arguing in the bedroom when he got a Glock pistol out of his safe. She locked herself in the bathroom, but Krantz broke in and reportedly pushed her to the ground. The woman got away and fled with her children to the neighbor’s house. When police arrived, Krantz was standing in the front yard, holding the gun.

According to the College’s website, Krantz has been “affiliated with fire and emergency medical services since 1985.” His responsibilities include “direct[ing] and supervis[ing] all activities of the College of Charleston Fire and Emergency Medical Services, and provid[ing] for coordination and implementation of College of Charleston Emergency Management.” No word has been given about whether or not he will be fired.

Krantz posted $15,000 bail and was released last Sunday.
