SC's ex-top cop among those defending video gaming


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The man once tasked with hunting down



illegal gaming



machines in South Carolina is now among those



defending the use of new devices



whose legality is yet to be



determined.


Until July, Reggie Lloyd was chief of the State Law Enforcement



Division, the state



police agency charged with seizing and



destroying the video poker machines that



have been illegal in South



Carolina since 2000. An attorney in private practice in



Columbia,



Lloyd now represents several companies that have developed new



video



gaming machines they say aren't illegal under current state



law.


Local judges across the state have issued differing opinions on



whether the new



machines are illegal, so whether they stay or go



could ultimately be up to the state



Supreme Court.
