L.A. Traffic Cop Fired for Starring in Porn Film While on Duty...in Uniform

"Inappropriate behavior while on duty..."

One would think that a police officer might know better than to appear in a web-based porn film at all, let alone in full uniform while on duty, and not expect to be found out.

Well, that's what reportedly happened when one Los Angeles traffic cop appeared in a popular online porn series, fondling a porn actress' breasts and spanking her.

Officer John Dancler has reportedly been discharged from the L.A. Department of Transportation while another officer who also appeared in the adult film has been allowed to return to his job in parking enforcement.

An NBC4 investigative report back in April exposed the officers’ participation in the lewd movie, allegedly prompting an investigation into the misconduct by the LADOT. NBC4 reports:

Bruce Gillman, spokesman for LADOT called the agency’s investigation "thorough" and said it is now complete. The department has disciplined the officers for "inappropriate behavior while on duty," Gillman said.

Dancler is appealing his termination before the city’s Civil Service Commission.

"We believe the city's action is totally unwarranted and...we believe it's a wrongful termination," Dancler’s attorney, Bobby Samini, told NBC4.

The other officer in the movie, Vaughn Dorsey, has been allowed to return to his job as a parking enforcement officer in the Valley Division after being disciplined, according to multiple sources in the department.

The movie featured Dorsey standing by while a porn actress performed indecent acts on herself in his Parking Enforcement car.

Sources reportedly told NBC4 that then-Chief Jimmy Price was "aware" of the officers' participation in the porn film, but chose to look the other way. Price alleged the reason he was slow to respond was because a "positive identification" could not be made on the officers in the film. But anonymous sources say that's "hogwash."

Perhaps not coincidentally, just weeks after the investigation, Price retired a reported two years ealier than he originally planned, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa replaced the management at LADOT, promising to enact swift discipline of any and all officers engaged in future misconduct.

Meanwhile L.A.P.D. Commander Michael Williams is now temporarily in charge of Parking Enforcement and told NBC4 he intends to clean up the department:

"I assure you that we're going to put systems in place that will hold everybody accountable up and down the line," Williams told NBC4 in May. "Up and down the chain of command."

The video report below features clips of the adult film that the officers appeared in and explains the subsequent investigation:
