MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - An ex-Horry County police officer has been arrested and faces charges including burglary and domestic violence.

A spokesperson for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division confirmed to WMBF News on Friday that Quintard Tucker was taken into custody on Friday after a request from Myrtle Beach Police Chief Amy Prock.

The spokesperson also said Tucker was an officer with the Horry County Police Department.

Meanwhile, an Horry County spokesperson confirmed to WMBF News that Tucker is no longer employed by the department.

Warrants obtained by WMBF News state Tucker approached a female victim in the parking lot of the Compass Cove Resort and pushed them to the ground twice before standing over her and leaving the area.
