A Marlboro County Sheriff's deputy has been arrested on a charge of misconduct in office.
Erick Flowers, 26, of McColl, faces the charge, the S.C. Law Enforcement Division and the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office announced Friday afternoon.
A SLED investigation came at the request of Marlboro County Sheriff Fred Knight in August, a news release said.
"I will not tolerate such conduct in the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office," Knight said in the release. "That is the reason why I called SLED in to make sure everything is kept above the law. I must also make sure the integrity of this office is maintained."
