Park Ranger Fired For Dancing On The Job
Park Ranger Fired For Dancing On The Job

A Tennessee park ranger has been fired after a park-goer posted a video on Facebook of him dancing on the job, WTVC reports.

Deryl Nelson was fired after his supervisors saw the video of him dancing and grabbing areas “that you would see on a rated R movie,” while on the job at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga.

Melissa Parsons originally posted the video, after capturing the scene on her cell phone.

“As a parent and seeing all the parents that were covering their kids eyes and turning their heads away, it wasn’t something you would expect to see in Coolidge Park or anywhere from a grown man, especially a man in uniform,” Parsons told NewChannel 9 WTVC.

When Nelson’s employer saw his dance moves, he was terminated for what the city calls “conduct unbecoming of a public employee.”
