NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (THE SUN NEWS) - North Myrtle Beach officials on Tuesday released a nearly hourlong police dashcam video that shows a heated altercation between a former police officer and Melissa Edge, the wife of state Rep. Tracy Edge, that took place Sept. 14 at the city's fire station on Sea Mountain Highway.

The video shows a combative Melissa Edge, who admits to drinking alcohol before the event and at one point threatens former police Sgt. Jeff Senter with his job if he takes her to jail.

Senter states numerous times on the video that Melissa Edge is intoxicated, but he does not arrest her. Instead, he urges her to get psychological help and arranges for Tracy Edge to pick her up and take her home.

Senter, a 16-year veteran of the city's police department, was fired because of his actions that night.

Just add the music from Garth Brooks and it could be on CMTV or Worlds Dumbest

That b***h should have been arrested and taken to jail, plain and simple. She is no more important than any other citizen and just because she is the wife of a Politician she deserves no special considerations. That Officer's job should be reinstated and he should be counseled for not arresting her and taking her butt to jail. I was a SC Police Officer for 10 years and had I run into her she would have be gone. Politicians, who needs them!

I am a proud native of South Carolina. I have not lived there since I was 17.

There is a reason that South Carolina is almost as popular as New Hampshire in the primaries. It is that our politicans are so crazy that they are actually entertaining.

Examples: Strom Thurmond, a lifelong segregationist- who, aft er his death was revealed to have fathered a child with a black woman.

John somebody, who had sex with his wife on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
She was a stone fox.

Then there was an FBI sting of a congressman (name long forgotten) stuffing $100 dollar bills in his pockets.

So we have fun with our politicians. We do not expect them to accomplish much and they do not dissapoint us.

Just swap out the fire station background for the Jerry Springer studio set.
