Cleveland County Commissioners have chosen an interim sheriff.

Don Holyfield, 65, will officially be sworn-in next month. Commissioners said they chose Holyfield out of the 11 candidates because he said he would not run for sheriff in the general election.

Holyfiled will replace Sheriff DeWayne Beggs, who is stepping down at the end of this month.
