AYNOR, SC (WMBF) - An officer of the law in Aynor found himself in handcuffs after complaints of misconduct were filed against him.

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 after offering to dismiss a traffic violation if the woman he pulled over would pull up her shirt.

Booking records for J. Reuben Long Detention Center show Bradley Jordan was booked into their facility around 7:46 a.m. Thursday and released less than hours later with a $5,000 bond.
