Florida Officer Fired Over ‘Training Day’ Reenactments
Florida, the state that could single-handedly keep print media alive with all the foolishness and f**kery that goes on down there.
WESH reports that a Leesburg police officer has been fired after he reportedly reenacted several scenes from Denzel Washington’s classic Training Day.
Deputy Dean Zipes allegedly pulled out his pistol and taser to rub them together outside of convenience store while alongside a rookie officer. Zipes told the internal affairs investigators that he was just crackin’ jokes.
The report says Zipes twice pulled his firearm in an office setting, voiced racial slurs, made a motion to draw his gun at a pizza delivery driver and became upset after not receiving free Starbucks coffee.
During the incident in which he made a motion to draw his gun at the delivery man, Zipes joked that the delivery man was alleged murderer Markeith Loyd, the report said.
This guy thinks he’s in the Super Troopers sequel, or Police Academy or somethin’.
