MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - On Nov. 11, 2009, former Vice President Al Gore's photo was listed on J. Reuben Long Detention Center's bookings and releases.

According to the jail log, the entry for Gore's photo, titled "Test Test" shows he was incarcerated at 12:40 p.m. Wednesday on public disorderly charges. Bail was set at $200.

A second entry for "Test Test" was found on Feb. 8, 2009, also featuring Gore's photo. That entry shows charges of aiding or abetting theft of electric current and an 8-minute stay at the jail.

Lisa H Bourcier, Director of Public Information, released this statement:

"The Detention Center has conducted an audit trail on the Al Gore photograph that was inadvertently placed on the Detention Center's Web site yesterday [Wednesday], and they found the following:  On February 8, 2009, a training representative from Motorola imported the picture under the name Test, Test and used the file during an Offendertrak training session at the Detention Center.  The same training representative is currently training members of the North Myrtle Beach Police Department in Offendertrak, and yesterday [Wednesday] during to switch over to go live with the new system in North Myrtle Beach, the file accidentally downloaded to the Detention Center Web site.  Once the error was brought to the attention of their staff, they immediately removed the file."

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Nov. 11 occurance was first reported by Myrtle Beach Restaurant News' Becky Billingsley on her Twitter account @RestaurantGal.
