A former Arizona cop was fired earlier this year for allegedly using a department body camera to film himself having sex and storing porn on a computer, The Arizona Republic reported, citing court documents.

Officer Anthony Doran was the subject of an administrative probe by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in March, the report said. The content of that investigation was the public this month after a Superior, Ariz., resident filed a civil complaint that Doran had been between the several officers beat and falsely arrested him during a 2016 search of his house.

According to the report, Doran had saved a video on a flash drive of him having sex with a woman in his office. The report said the woman was not a police employee.

The stick was discovered by an office secretary to Doran’s computer, which allegedly contained a folder with the title “fun times.” A deputy subsequently discovered 36 gigabytes of photos in the folder, including pornography and a naked girl around the age of five years, the report said.

Doran told The Republic that he had saved both the video and the pornography on a flash drive, which “had nothing to do with the work,” and refused to be on duty when he filmed himself. Doran said the naked girl was his daughter and was not photographed in a sexual way, the paper said. Superior’s town manager fired Doran after the examination.

Superior is a mining town, with a population of about 3,000, located about 65 miles east of Phoenix. The civil complaint that was filed this month accused Superior of the hiring of officials with the eventful history in order to cut costs, the appointment of Doran under several of the officers, who allegedly beat and falsely arrested a resident on trumped-up charges.

“The city hires lesser officers with extensive misconduct records to save money,” the complaint alleged. “Once the city hires meet the requirements, ‘second chance’ officers, fails to train properly/schools.”

According to the Arizona Republic, the most Superior 9 police officers were at one point dismissed or disciplined by other police forces. Doran was previously terminated in 2013, the Pima County Sheriff’s Office for sexual misconduct, records showed.

Superior Mayor Mila Besich-Lira said that the city is the pursuit of reforms ” so that we do not continue with this bad behavior.”
