A Tennessee firefighter has resigned after police mistook him for a burglar while he was caught performing a sex act on another man in the fire station.
A police officer was patrolling the streets of Signal Mountain on Oct. 6 when he saw a man standing outside the Signal Mountain Fire Station 2, and what appeared to be a woman inside the lobby, The Chattanoogan reported.
The officer approached the station thinking there was a robbery but encountered the firefighter dressed as a woman and performing a sex act on the man.
Authorities have not identified the firefighter.
Cops eventually took the man, who’s from Alabama, into custody and admitted the woman was actually a man who let him into the station.
The officer at the scene reported a firefighter who was helping him in the search was the firefighter accused of performing the lewd act.
The officer was suspicious of the firefighter because he noticed lip gloss on his lower lip, according to The Chattanoogan.
The firefighter told the officer he was the suspect he was looking for, and that he was the one performing the sexual encounter on the Alabama man.
No charges were filed and the firefighter later resigned.
