Officer accused of offering to dismiss citation if woman lifted shirt

Posted: Updated:
HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) -

A former Aynor police officer is out of a job after being accused of offering to dismiss a traffic citation if the woman he pulled over would pull up her shirt.

The complaints against 24-year-old Bradley Rex Jordan were filed on May 2 after a traffic stop, and he was placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation approximately one hour later.

On the following day, Aynor Police Chief David Thompson requested the investigation into those complaints be turned over to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.

After that investigation, Jordan was terminated from the Aynor Police Department on Wednesday, May 8 for a departmental policy violation.

"It is the mission of the Aynor Police Department to maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct for police officers," said Chief Thompson.

Warrants for Jordan indicate he has been charged with misconduct in office.
