September 22, 2010  |

A Moncks Corner (S.C.) police officer is now out of a job, after photos of bikini-clad women draped on his cruiser showed up on the Facebook page of a tattoo parlor, reports the Post and Courier.

The photos were posted on the tattoo parlor's Facebook page.

A Berkeley County sheriff's deputy who attendee the event at Rockstar Tattoo Studio in Goose Creek is also under review. The charity event was called the "Tit n Tats" car wash.

Moncks Corner offers its officers a take-come cruiser and sets restrictions along with that perk, including not allowing bikini-clad women to be photographed next to it, Chief Chad Caldwell told the media outlet.

Reprimanded yes but to get fired is ridiculus.

But he did save the city money on the car wash! If in doubt, do without. It would have saved his butt to have thought that.

This is just total wrong to make such a big deal about. First of all this was a fund raiser for charties in the local area. It was tasteful and did not show embarassment to any agency. Sheriff's Deptuy should not be disciplined for bikini car wash. She did not do anything wrong but did help in fund raising for charities. Even the photo of the patrol car did not show what agency the car was from and should not be any question about it. The Sheriff of Berkeley County did the right thing.

The Moncks Corner Police Officer should of not even been asked to resign or be fired. He did not do anything wrong either. The Police Officer was at the event as a private citizen too. I am sure the take car home policy does not state, "You can not take your car to a car wash to clean it or you can not have women in bikini's wash it". The Moncks Corner Police Chief Chad Caldwell needs to be fired. He was not professional in the matter and he made a bad judgement call. The next time this even happens the entire police force of Moncks Corner needs to be off duty but have their cars washed for this charity fund raiser. Shame on you for not supporting the local community. Who cares where the women were from that was helping wash cars since they were wearing bikini swim clothes. So what if it is a Rockstar Studio promoting the event. Allowing binini-clad women to be photographed next to a take home cruiser is NOT a violation. The Police Officer should seek legal advice for this type of discrimination. I guess if they were wearing the McGruff customes it would of been alright or maybe all their clothes. "It did not reflect badly on the police department or the town". It did however show community support by an off duty Police Officer. The Police Officer was also making sure his cruiser was clean for his next shift". I am sure the Police Department policy was to keep your cruiser clean and it does not say how you are to clean it. Moncks Corner should be as
