LA traffic officer fired for being in porn film
John Dancler was dismissed for misconduct on the job and in uniform
LOS ANGELES — A city official says a Los Angeles traffic officer has been fired for appearing in uniform in a pornographic film.
Bruce Whidden, executive director of the city's Civil Service Commission, told the Los Angeles Times Thursday the officer was fired earlier this week.
Whidden says John Dancler was dismissed for misconduct on the job and in uniform, and indecent acts that reflected poorly on the city workforce.
Dancler, a 23-year employee of the city's Department of Transportation, has filed an appeal challenging his dismissal.
Dancler and another uniformed traffic officer came under investigation three months ago after KNBC reported that they appeared in the film. One scene showed an actress performing lewd acts in a city car.
