A Richmond County School Board candidate was released from the Richmond County Jail Monday after posting $5,000 bond.

53 year old James Swanagan was arrested at his home on Friday and charged with simple battery.

Authorities say Swanagan allegedly grabbed a woman, believed to be his daughter, by the hair and beat her with a belt for being disrespectful.

He’s running for the Super District 9 school board seat in Richmond County.
