CHARLESTON, SC - A newly hired Hanahan police officer had resigned from his previous job during a misconduct investigation and his old boss says he shouldn't be in law enforcement anymore.
Police say 38-year-old Officer Michael Pancake was a North Charleston police officer when he was accused of making unwanted sexual advances toward a young woman while he was on duty.
North Charleston Police Chief Jon Zumalt said he expected Pancake's resignation to mean he would no longer be a police officer.
But Hanahan officials knew about the investigation when they hired Pancake in January - just months after the accusations were made.
Two years ago, state lawmakers pledged to improve monitoring of troubled officers after a series of newspaper articles highlighted the problems.
