Officer Patrick Phillips Accused of Providing Alcohol to Minors

A Gaffney police officer has been suspended without pay after he was accused of providing alcohol to a minor.

Gaffney Police Chief Rick Turner said that the State Law Enforcement Division has been asked to investigate the allegations against Officer Patrick Phillips made earlier this week.

The report was filed with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office but the incident allegedly took place in Gaffney, so it was turned over the Gaffney Police Department.

Turner turned the investigation over to SLED after an internal investigation.
