North Myrtle Beach officer firing stands

A North Myrtle Beach grievance committee upheld the firing of former police Sgt. Jeff Senter.

Senter's two hour grievance hearing was held Nov. 15 and was closed to the public.

Senter was fired Oct. 6 after he was accused of mishandling a public confrontation with the wife of state Rep. Tracy Edge of North Myrtle Beach.

The grievance committee notified City Manager Mike Mahaney of its decision in a Nov. 23 letter.
