A beat cop in Memphis is under investigation after police microphones recorded him having sex in his squad car while he was on duty last week, authorities said.
Additionally, anyone with a police scanner would have also heard the kinky pair’s huffing-and-puffing, sources said.
Anthony, who joined the force in July 2007, works between 2 and 10 p.m., and the illicit broadcast went out sometime around 8:45 p.m., police officials said.
Memphis police spokesman Sgt. Karen Rudolph told WHBQ that investigators were not sure whether the audio was picked up by Anthony’s shoulder radio or the console mic in his squad car.
“Anytime you communicate via a hand-held or console microphone you want to remain professional,” Rudolph said. “Our job is to make sure all officers follow procedures. In this instance it’s possible he didn’t follow proper procedure.”
Anthony was suspended on Tuesday.
Memphis police said a hearing on the incident was planned, and that the audio would be released at some point.
