A police officer in San Antonio has been fired after boasting to his partner that he gave a homeless person a fecal sandwich.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said that Luckhurst claimed that he took two bread slices, put feces between them and put the sandwich in a Styrofoam container.
McManus said Luckhurst told his partner what he did and that the partner told him to retrieve the container which he did. The officer’s story disgusted other officers and the details made it to the chain of command.
Mayor Ivy Taylor issued a statement on the termination.
“Firing this officer was the right thing to do,” he said. “His actions were a betrayal of every value we have in our community, and he is not representative of our great police force.”
The officer did not comment after advice from his attorney but his attorney, Ben Sifuentes, told the paper his client joked about giving an excrement sandwich to a homeless person but never actually did so.
