A Jackson, Miss., police officer was fired after video surfaced of him soliciting sex, reportedly from a teen, on Facebook, WAPT reports.
In the minute-long video, which includes graphic language, the officer can be heard telling the young lady, "Man, you look like you're scared to f—k."
"You said you wasn't going to school," the officer, identified as Darryl Stasher, continues.
"Man, I ain't scared to f—k with nobody. What you talking about?" the girl replies.
"Chief [Lee] Vance finds it very disturbing that an officer in a marked patrol vehicle would even indulge himself in that type of behavior," Police Cmdr. Tyree Jones told WAPT.
Stasher was an eight-year veteran with the Jackson Police Department.
The news station notes that the girl's family said that she is 17 years old, although on her Facebook page her year of birth is given as 1990.
Regardless, Jones said that age doesn’t change the fact that Stasher's behavior was inappropriate.
"It's just even more disturbing if she is a juvenile, but again, it's the content of the video; it's the content of the language that was used in the video. It was also him being in uniform, in a marked patrol car. That's not the behavior that we would like the public to see," Jones said.
