A Spartanburg Police officer, who attended CCU and was a football player there until an incident with police, was arrested and fired after being accused of discharging a firearm into a dwelling.

Alvin Jamar Anderson, 25, of Duncan, was involved in the incident shortly before 4 a.m. Friday, and was taken into custody by Spartanburg County deputies.

Anderson was originally placed on leave, but was later terminated from the department.

Anderson, who is a Wellford native, started as an officer with the department earlier this year.

He played as wide receiver on the CCU football team, with appearances in all 11 games in 2007. Anderson played 8 games for the team in 2006 as a freshman. (Click here to view his profile page from CCU)

"This matter is extremely disappointing, but I am grateful that no one was seriously injured or there was not a loss of life", said Colonel Jennifer Kindall.

Anderson was kicked off the CCU team in mid-Sept. 2008 when police say a fight got out of control at "Break Room Billiards," which is  just off Highway 544, near campus.

Police say Anderson screamed obscenities at them while they tried to control the crowd, so they arrested him.

Police say he smelled of alcohol. He was 20 years old at the time.

Police charged Anderson with public disorderly conduct at the time. The disposition of that case is unclear.

Anderson graduated from Byrnes High School where he led the state his senior season with 103 receptions for 1,839 yards and 21 touchdowns, earning Associated Press and High School Sports Report Class AAAA All-State honors, as well as All-Region and All-Area accolades, according to the CCU website.
