A former Sardis (Ga.) Police officer once nicknamed "Robocop" was fatally shot by a current officer early Monday after he was found in the station's evidence room wielding an ax.

Dwayne Burke, 34, was shot during a physical struggle, reports the Augusta True Citizen.

Burke had resigned from the department in 2009, after he was investigated for texting nude photos of himself while in the Sardis PD locker room. He was later cleared of any wrongdoing.

In July 2010, he was arrested at a traffic stop in Georgia’s McIntosh County, when he impersonated a military police officer and active-duty Screven County Sheriff's deputy. In July 2012, he was arrested in connection with a residential burglary in Sylvania.
