ANDERSON, S.C. -- A DUI case against a former Pickens Police officer was dropped on Wednesday.

Former Officer Irving "Rocky" Simmons appeared in court in Anderson for his trial on a drunken driving charge from 2007.

Simmons was arrested on Dec. 31, 2007 after an accident.

Investigators said Simmons had gotten into a fight with his girlfriend and then hit a tree in his police car.

After his arrest, Simmons was fired from his job as a police officer.

The state trooper who had cited Simmons for DUI did not appear in court on Wednesday, leading the judge to drop the charges in the case.

  1. Makes you wonder if it was a phony DUI charge or if the citing officer just decided to let it go since the accused was a former police officer who already lost his job as a result of the accident. Smells like conspiracy...
