SAN FRANCISCO A San Francisco police officer who produced videos parodying life on the force that were denounced as racist, sexist and homophobic is resigning.
Andrew Cohen said Tuesday he'll leave the department in July.
The 44-year-old Cohen was the department videographer when he filmed controversial skits in 2005. One video showed an officer running over a homeless woman, one showed a male officer ogling a female motorist, and another showed officers heading into a massage parlor.
The department's internal affairs division launched an investigation after the videos were discovered on a Web site. Then-Police Chief Heather Fong later suspended two dozen officers.
Cohen, who is out on disability, says he is tired of fighting the numerous disciplinary cases against him and wants to move on with his life.
The police department declined to comment on his resignation.
