SLED: Officer charged after performing sex act on himself in patrol car

CAMDEN, SC (WIS) - A former Camden Police Department officer has been charged with misconduct in office after what investigators said he was doing in his patrol car in late 2015.

According to a SLED affidavit dated Feb. 18, Officer Marshall Lee Hardin, II was in his parked patrol car at Woodward Park on Ballpark Road back on Dec. 13, 2015.

Hardin, the affidavit continues, was watching pornography on his personal phone when he performed a sex act on himself in his car and in a nearby public restroom. He is also accused of exposing himself outside of his car.

We have reached out to the Camden Police Department for comment.

The charge, upon conviction, carries up to 10 years in prison.
