The South Carolina Law Enforcement Agency confirmed to FOX Carolina that a University of South Carolina Upstate police officer was charged with misconduct in office Thursday.

The school said Kimberly Holupka, 33, of Lancastey, CA, was a police officer there until she resigned in 2010. She also served as a police officer in Greenville until 2003, according to Greenville police.

Spartanburg County deputies said Holupka turned herself in at the Spartanburg County Detention Center on Thursday morning.

According to a warrant, Holupka provided information about a vehicle to undercover agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Greenville County Sheriff's Office in 2009.

SLED said she accessed the Department of Motor Vehicle records while on duty at USC Upstate.

Holupka was released on bond Thursday night. Her lawyer told FOX Carolina that she will return to California until her next court appearance.

If convicted, Holupka could face up to 10 years in prison on the misdemeanor charge.
