Facebook photos lead to cop's firing

Sep 22, 2010 11:22:00 AM - thestate.com
A town police officer was out of a job Tuesday after photos of bikini-clad strippers draped around his police cruiser showed up on Facebook.

Police Chief Chad Caldwell would not identify the officer. He also would not say if the officer was fired or asked to resign, saying that it was a personnel matter and he was forbidden by law from discussing it.

Caldwell did acknowledge, however, that the officer was no longer with the department.

The car wash was held Sunday at Rockstar Tattoo Studio on Redbank Road. It featured bikini-clad dancers from Diamonds North night club in North Charleston, according to Rockstar Studio's Facebook page.

"I think he took his personal car there first and then he went in his police car," Caldwell said. "I don't think he was trying to be malicious. I think he used completely poor judgment."
