Speedo-Wearing Utah Officer Reinstated
June 22, 2012
A Provo City school resource officer terminated for stripping down to a green Speedo at a school birthday party has been reinstated and will now be wearing a holster and a gun around his waist instead.
Former Provo High School resource officer Cody Harris took off his pants during a female co-worker’s birthday party at the school on May 2 to show off green Speedo-style underwear and a green hoodie, according to a hearing report from the Provo Civil Service Commission. Harris wore the outfit to play the part of the frog for the "Princess and the Frog" theme party.
Harris appealed his firing to the Provo Civil Service Commission, who overturned it.
