S.C. Cop Fabricated Shooting Story

July 09, 2012  | 

North Charleston police sergeant Eddie Bullard shot himself and then made up a story for investigators that he was wounded by his own gun during a struggle with a shadowy suspect, Police Chief Jon Zumalt said.

In a hastily called late afternoon City Hall press conference, Zumalt said that Bullard's account of being shot with his gun while defending himself outside a Rivers Avenue business upset the police and the community.

"It gets everybody on edge," he said. "I'm sorry to the community."

What is your problem Sergeant? Fine example you are setting for those coming up in the ranks and also giving the entire LE Community a huge black eye! You should lose your Certification as a Police Officer in the State of SC, period. You lied and that can NEVER be tolerated as a professional LEO.
