A thirty-year-old South Carolina police officer has been arrested and charged with sexting X-rated images to a 13-year-old Iowa girl. The cop,¬†Andrew Alan Haney, is … or at least was … a member of the West Columbia, S.C. police department.

How’d he get caught?

According to the Associated Press, “authorities say they identified Haney as a suspect after he sent the girl a photo with his police badge with the state seal visible in the photo.”

Jeez …

It figures this guy is from South Carolina, doesn’t it?

Anyway Haney has been charged with the interstate commerce of obscene material to a child under the age of sixteen.

News of Haney’s arrest was first reported by The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper.
