Deputy Fired For Waving Weapons, Quoting Denzel Washington 'Training Day' Lines


A Florida sheriff's deputy has been fired after he went all Denzel Washington in Training Day.

Deputy Dean Zipes, who'd been on the force for just a year-and-a-half, waved his gun and his Taser around while quoting Denzel's profanity-filled lines in Training Day, a movie about a corrupt cop. The alleged incident occurred at 4:00 a.m. at a police station. 

Other deputies and a trainee were around at the time. Zipes insists he was trying to be funny and told investigators, "I am not a rogue, reckless, dangerous, insane guy that slipped through the cracks at the hiring process and somehow got a gun and a badge," adding that he's "just a guy going through some stuff." 

But he's actually acting a lot like a reckless, dangerous, insane guy. The department is also investigating another incident in which Zipes allegedly "made a scene in a local Starbucks after not receiving free coffee."


So, in case you don't remember the Training Day movie alley scene the deputy was acted out above... here is the scene with Denzel...
