NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A former North Charleston police sergeant who staged a shooting last year where he shot himself has paid a fine for the incident, according to his lawyer.

Attorney Andy Savage said Eddie Bullard, who was fired from the North Charleston Police Department last summer, paid a $159 fine for reporting false information to police.

According to Savage, Bullard was facing a misconduct in office charge, but that charge was dropped after Bullard pleaded guilty to a charge of reporting false information to police.

Police spokesman Spencer Pryor said Bullard was terminated on July 9, 2012. Jon Zumalt, North Charleston police chief at the time, said Bullard admitted to shooting himself on July 4, 2012 and that no other people were involved in the incident.

Savage says Bullard was struggling with personal issues around the time the shooting happened.

Bullard originally reported that he was shot during a struggle with a suspect. Zumalt said an investigation revealed no one else was involved in the shooting incident.

Bullard was a 15-year veteran of the department.
