EDGEFIELD, SC---He is a Federal Prison guard in Edgefield County.
Now he's the one behind bars.

39-year old William Copeland is accused of threats to fellow employees and supervisors going back to October.

Investigators say in October of 2007 Copeland fought with Aiken police when they tried to arrest him for a gross intoxication / disorderly conduct charge.

In that case Copeland was accused of harassing at least two children and using racial slurs during the verbal altercation.
