SOMERVILLE, Mass., Nov. 3 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts police officer lost his sick pay after city officials discovered he had been coaching high school baseball and acting in an adult movie.
Ronnie White, who says he suffers from panic attacks triggered in 1998 when he responded to a teenager's suicide, told the Somerville Journal that appearing in "Naughty But Nice" has nothing to do with his inability to carry a gun and function as a Somerville police officer.
"I feel like I'm carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders," White said.
Police Chief Robert Bradley says White, when he applied for disability, claimed vertigo, and not traumatic stress disorder. He believes White had received a lot more sick pay than he is entitled to, well beyond the department's normal 20-day limit.
