  • The Gay Porn Cop

    Just read this on the home page. Administrative leave? You're freaking kidding me. I mean, had he done this when he was a cop there's no question he should be fired. Or, had they discovered this during a background and not hired him because of it I'd say fine. But to even consider terminating him because of this is an absolute joke.

    A Hollywood police officer and reality TV star has been put on administrative leave amid allegations that he starred in a gay porn film.

    The Hollywood Police Department put Michael Verdugo, 34, known as a contestant on HGTV's "Design Star," on administrative leave with pay Wednesday when authorities discovered he might have played a starring role in a 1996 porn film.

    Verdugo joined the police force in 2001, five years after the movie was filmed.

    "He's a great cop with a distinguished record of serving this community for many years," said Al Milian, Verdugo's attorney.

    Milian would not deny or confirm Verdugo's possible involvement in the film.

    "I think every police officer during their career are subject to investigations. The overwhelming number of allegations are always found to be unfounded," Milian said.

    Milian said that ever since Verdugo's sexual orientation was revealed in 2004, he has dealt with discrimination and harassment.

    "I think when you have a certain lifestyle in the 21st century, you're always going to be subject to heightened scrutiny," Milian said.

    Some might say that a sex video scandal could help fuel Verdugo's celebrity as an interior designer, NBC 6's Sharon Lawson reported. Dan Renzi, a former reality TV star and the editor of Express newspaper, said he does not think design is where Verdugo's heart is.

    "Even when we were asking questions about his career in the interior design field, he kept referring to his career as a police officer being his true love," Renzi said.

    The Hollywood Police Department did not comment about the internal investigation or what could happen next, Lawson reported.

    Milian said he is prepared to defend Verdugo's record and outstanding contribution to the community.

    It says he did 5 years prior to becoming police. I wonder if there will be another question added to that departments polygraph questionaire

      Why can't he be a cop and make porn? Porn is legal, and I doubt his department has a policy against making naked movies. I don't see why people are so uptight about sex - if it's between consenting adults, what's wrong with any of it?

        Personally I'm one of them people who could careless what someone does on their own time. As long as they are there when I need back up, I'm happy. But a community as a whole looks down on stuff like this. Being a cop it seems like everyone watch every move you make and criticizes everything you they don't like, it's a part of the job. I have heard of people in the area getting turned down for a job because they were strippers years ago. Does that make them bad people? No, they were trying to feed their family or get through school and it was a quick legal way to make a lot of money. It all goes back to that moral clause.

          It would be one thing to not hire the guy beacause of this. Quite another to fire him as long as they did not ask about it during the process. Given when he was hired, I doubt they even thought of it. Now though, I've had some weird questions in those background things. Stuff like this kind of explains it.

              Which I strongly disagree with. People should not be disqualified based on the personal morals of a particular administrator. As long as the conduct is not violating the law, this in particular issue should not be a factor.

              Unless the guy is filming gay porn in his PD uniform, I don't see where the problem is

                    I don't understand it myself either. What someone does in their off time, as long as they don't affiliate themselves with their department or police, is THEIR business. If one of my local law enforcement officers stared in gay porn... I wouldn't give a rat's butt. What difference does it make? If they're a good officer it SHOULDN'T, imo.

                      Well it said he was on some interior design reality show. Now I am no Detective but maybe the same type of people who watch gay porn might also watch interior design reality shows?

                        Most of the pre-polygraph packets I've looked at have a question in the end that goes something like this, "Is there anything in your background that we do not know about that you think will affect our decision in hiring you that we did not cover?"

                        Wouldn't you say society holds police officers to a higher standard? Many children look at officers as role models. And in a way, police officers are representatives of their city, community and even government.

                        I'm not passing any judgment, just some things to consider.

                          That question is a catch all and there is no correct or incorrect answer. What you may feel would be interesting to know about someone, I might consider trivial. It's a catch 22 that allows an agency to articulate NOT carrying someone further in the hiring process if they find out something that bothers them.

                          I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                            Of course, but how did this story become public in the first place?

                              plenty of gay cop's running around south fla and they are doing their
                              jobs and no bad talk about them and they are not in the news.
                              this is a non-issue for any reason.

                              broward county has a ordinance that prohibits discrimination for
                              orientation.
