Dennis was accused of attacking one of Ravenel’s female campaign staffers in November 2014, according to Charleston Police Department records obtained by Page Six.
Cameron Grace Sepulveda, then 24, accused Dennis of assaulting her on November 4, 2014.
“Ms. Sepulveda stated that Ms. Dennis attempted to strike her with a closed first in her face but missed, barely grazing Ms. Sepulveda’s forehead as she was passing by,” the initial police report read. “Ms. Sepulveda stated that Ms Dennis was in the company of Thomas Ravenel when the incident took place. Ms. Sepulveda stated that she used to work on Mr. Ravenel’s campaign.”
According to Sepulveda’s LinkedIn page, she worked as a Grassroots Coordinator Assistant for Ravenel from July to November 2014. She listed that she was responsible for cold calling voters, coordinating campaign strategies and even “focused on loyalty and discretion, especially when working closely with Mr. Ravenel’s personal affairs.”
When another officer met with a witness to the fight, the witness said that “he observed Mr. Ravenel making contact with Ms. Sepulveda and heard him warning her that Ms. Dennis was coming seconds before the altercation transpired.”
Sepulveda “made it clear” that she did not want to pursue charges against Dennis or have the case investigated any further just two days later. As a result, the investigation officer closed the case.
Dennis and Ravenel’s first child, Kensie, was born just months before the incident on March 24.
Dennis, now 26, met Ravenel, now 55, in 2013 and they dated until October 2014. But they had another tryst and welcomed their son Saint in 2015.
Dennis’ lawyer didn’t return our request for comment and Sepulveda didn’t get back to us.
