TR Police Officer Fired
The State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) said agents are investigating after a former Travelers Rest Police Department officer was involved in an alleged sexual assault on Sunday morning (July 3).
SLED officials said their investigation began after Police Chief Benjamin Ford requested their help on Sunday.
Ford said they got the complaint from the victim at around 5:00 p.m. on Sunday and fired the officer that same night.
According to Fox Carolina News, Ford said, the officer was on-duty when the incident occurred but was not responding to a call.
The officer has not been identified.
This situation is still developing as SLED agents continue to investigate.
