COLUMBIA, S.C. — State agents have arrested a former Holly Hill police officer they say dropped traffic charges against women after asking to videotape them stripping.
The State Law Enforcement Division says 36-year-old Mark Wright has been charged with four counts of misconduct in office for the incidents that happened in the Orangeburg County town between 1998 and 2004.
State agents say Wright also offered to drop a speeding charge if a woman pulled up her shirt and let him photograph her and took personal pictures of another woman during a search of her home.
SLED says they seized copies of the videotapes and photographs from Wright’s apartment in January.
