The New Mexico Department of Public Safety has decided after all to fire the amorous Bert Lopez after he got filmed enjoying some afternoon delight on top of a car.
After reassurances from New Mexico police authorities that the officer did not commit any crime with his actions and therefore would not be punished, they apparently changed their mind. It could have been the fact that he embarrassed the department by wearing his uniform while fornicating and have a Chihuahua watch in horror.
Santa Fe’s ‘Officer of the Year’ Lopez did not survive the attention his romp caused on the internet and social media when photos of his encounter went viral. He has 30 days to appeal his firing, he is an eight year veteran of the state police force. It is still not known if Lopez was on duty (we mean official duty not sex duty) when the incident occurred.
