Ohio Deputy Fired for Making Inmates Dance

May 04, 2012  | 

An Ohio sheriff's deputy has been fired for making inmates dance if they wanted to use the jail microwave.

Summit County (Ohio) Sheriff's Deputy Dominic Martucci, 35, was fired for violating departmental policies. An inmate reported that Martucci ordered five inmates to dance to Usher's Yeah! song and invited other deputies to watch during an early evening shift on April 11. The inmates danced their way to regaining use of a microwave that they had lost earlier that day, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.

Another inmate won the right to use the phone and commissary items for his old-school robot dance routine.

If you've ever been to Summit county this story makes perfect sense.

Was it the fox trot or waltz? I always hated to dance too!

I am somewhat sorry the deputy lost his job over this.

On the other hand, it was a markedly dopey thing to do.

Too much Southland.
