A South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles employee faces three bribery counts after investigators say he took cash or concert tickets to let people pass various driving tests.
The employee was arrested Tuesday, the State Law Enforcement Division said.
In one case, the worker took $100 to give someone a beginner’s driving permit. In another case, he took concert tickets to bypass a road test and in a third case the employee took $60 to give someone a beginner’s permit for a commercial driver’s license, according to arrest warrants.
The employee is charged with three counts of receiving anything of value to influence the action of a public employee.
The charges are considered felonies and carry up to 10 years in prison for each conviction.
