PROVO, Utah (June 21, 2012)--A Utah police officer who was fired after he dropped his pants and flaunted a green Speedo during a "Princess and the Frog" skit at a school is getting his job back.
Cody Harris filed an appeal after he was dismissed from his position as a Provo school resource officer in May, but the Provo Civil Service Commission decided Wednesday that Harris should be reinstated.
Provo police said in an e-mail that the department still backs its initial decision to fire Harris, but said it will honor the commission's decision.
Harris was dismissed after Provo police said he removed his pants to show off the Speedo-style suit and made inappropriate gestures and comments while a group of female students were nearby.
Harris will receive training to work in the patrol division.
