police office was fired after showing lewd photos of himself to strangers. AZFamily.com's Jared Dillingham reports.
Witnesses started coming forward over the last few months, claiming officer Berry was taking pictures of his genitals on his cell phone before sending them to women trying to convince them to have sex with him.
The Internal Affairs report says the officer's unprofessional behavior happened while on duty. Investigators say Officer Berry hit on a number of women using his job to get dates, once while investigating a suicide and two other times at Maricopa City Hall.
The officer is also accused of harassing two married couples and hitting on a 16-year-old girl who he kissed at a gym.
When confronted with the allegations in June, Officer Berry denied them but his bosses thought he was lying and he has now been fired.
One of the investigating officers reports Officer Berry was found guilty of doing the same thing at his last law enforcement job in Michigan. Officer allegedly takes photos of his genitals, sends them to strangers | Latest News | KENS5.com
