GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – A video showing a Greenville County Sheriff’s Deputy who appears to be cleaning a gun in public was posted to YouTube.

According to the video description, the video was recorded near the City Heights Apartments only feet away from kids playing football.

7News brought the video to the attention of the Sheriff’s Office who was unaware of the video.

Ryan Flood with the Greenville Co. Sheriff’s Office says that the report was sent to Internal Affairs.

It was concluded that there was a policy violation of improperly displaying a firearm.

Sheriff Loftis has ruled on this and the deputy was reprimanded.

Spokesperson Drew Pinciaro say they will not release what the reprimand is or who the officer was, due to policy.
