MIDLAND, Texas - A Texas sheriff fired one deputy and suspended three others without pay after a scantily dressed waitress holding a rifle posed for photographs on the hood of a patrol vehicle.

Police said Round Rock officers were dispatched to a restaurant after someone reported the waitress with the weapon, which had been given to her by one of the Midland County deputies who had been attending a training session near Austin.

The incident occurred last week in the parking lot of a Twin Peaks restaurant, which promotes its "fun, friendly and sometimes flirty atmosphere!"

The deputies told Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter that they had about three to five beers each.

A fifth deputy who remained inside the eatery got a letter of reprimand.

Sounds like these cops were thinking only with their little head....

You left out an important piece of the article:



They could have just said they were holding an impromptu town hall meeting and all would have been well.

Cheap shot brock. You mock what was the 'right' of that person...although I agree it was not a good idea. I support the Sheriff's decision. What were they thinking? or not.

It was a joke. And if not, who was I taking a cheap shot against? She looks less dangerous (at least re the gun!) than the town hall gun-packers.

Which, I believe was the cause for the firing and suspension.

If they hadn't had the beers, they could have claimed that they were making a recruiting poster.
