A South Carolina deputy assistant attorney general who claimed he was on his lunch break, but was actually entertaining a stripper in his SUV, has been given his marching orders.

Former state legislator Roland Corning, 66, was spotted on Monday by a police officer in "a secluded part" of a Columbia cemetery last Monday. According to officer Michael Wines' report, Corning first "sped off, then pulled over a few blocks away".

He and his 18-year-old companion - an employee of the Platinum Plus Gentleman's Club - gave "conflicting stories about what they were doing in the cemetery", although Wines "did not elaborate" as to what these might be.

Corning then flashed a badge proving his Attorney General's Office credentials. By chance, Wines' missus also worked there, so he gave her call to check. He then searched the vehicle and found "a Viagra pill and several sex toys". Corning said he had them with him "just in case".

Although Wines let the pair go without charge, his wife proved to be Corning's undoing. She "reported the call to her supervisor, who told Attorney General Henry McMaster".

McMaster told AP: "We received credible information about inappropriate behavior Monday afternoon, and by the close of business, he was no longer working here." ®
