During a hearing at the City of Conway Municpal Court, bond was set at $1,022 personal recognizance. Her initial court date was set for Feb. 8.
As she was being led into the courtroom, Pierce did not keep her voice silent on how she believes she is being treated by Horry County.
"I was on my way from church," she said. 'And they put me in jail overnight, talking about a DUI, knowing I don't drink. And that's what it's all about. It's Horry County as usual with their corruption and with their evilness trying to do onto Retha Pierce. So they put me back in jail, after church."
Again, on her way out of the courtroom after receiving a PR bond, Pierce continued her statement.
"I think I've said it all," she added. "Horry County will forever stay on Retha Pierce and Atlantic Beach, SC until they get everything they want from Atlantic Beach."
On Nov. 22, Pierce was issued a traffic citation for driving left of center by the City of North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Office.
In 2009, Pierce was arrested on suspicion of DUI by a trooper with the South Carolina Highway Patrol after finding her taking a nap inside her car in a parking lot off Highway 76 while she was still in office. She was released from jail on a personal recognizance bond.
Since her arrest, Pierce was removed from office and later reinstated to her post. The State dropped that DUI charge against Pierce back in May.
