Ken Glasson

Former Mount Pleasant Councilman Ken Glasson is named in a Charleston County Sheriff's Office investigation.

A former Mount Pleasant town councilman is named in an investigation into possible underage drinking and inappropriate sexual activity at a house on Seabrook Island, according to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office. 

Ken Glasson is named as a chaperone at the house from March 30 to April 2, dates around Wando High School's prom. 

A man told police "there was consumption of alcohol by underage individuals" and advised "there may have been some inappropriate sexual activity by the attendees during the event," a police report says. It names Glasson, a father of two, as one of two chaperones. 

Police still are investigating and are looking for attendees of the prom house, the report says. 

Glasson did not respond to a request for comment. 

He was one of several incumbent Mount Pleasant Town Council members voted off in 2015 during a wave of anti-development sentiment in the booming municipality. The owner of Mount Pleasant Paintball, he also ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2010 and mayor of Mount Pleasant in 2013.
