Two Horry county deputies are resigning as a result from presenting false information before a judge. Documents provided by the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy display that Deputy William McMeans Jr. and Michael Bryant resigned in May for writing false or misleading statements on warrants before passing them on to the judge. The two presented false statements to a judge in attempt to obtain arrest warrants for a person involved in a case. Officials confirmed the statements were incorrect through incident reports and body camera video. No information has been released regarding what the warrants were for or which case the incident was reporting to. No criminal charges have been filed against either former deputy and there is no pending criminal investigation.
