Georgia policeman fired for on-duty sex

SUWANEE, Ga., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- A Suwanee, Ga., police officer has been fired after admitting a sexual encounter while on duty.

Officer Michael Chavez admitted he received oral sex from a woman he escorted home from a bar Dec. 3, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday.

"We have a standard here. All officers know that if they indulge in such behavior they will be dismissed," Suwanee Police Chief Mike Jones said.

According to an internal police investigation, Chavez provided help to a woman too intoxicated to drive by offering to drive her home in his patrol car.

Initially, "he did everything properly", according to Jones, but Chavez neglected to check her for weapons possession before she entered the car, and allowed her to sit in the front seat. Both are policy violations.

Conflicting stories from the officer and the woman explain what occurred at her apartment, but Chavez admitted to receiving oral sex. He was fired Dec. 21.

The incident is the third time in December that Atlanta-area law enforcement officers were disciplined for engaging in sex while on the job.
