Bondage Flick Officially Ends Michael Verdugo’s Hollywood, Florida Cop Career

In the most riveting porn star courtroom episode that didn’t involve a murder, Michael Verdugo — the former Hollywood, Florida, cop ousted after his bosses found out about his little Rope Rituals gay bondage flick — has lost his unlawful discrimination argument. Which means a court won’t be forcing the police department to take him back.

Verdugo, who has been running his own real estate/home staging business since 2006 (according to his Facebook page), retains his certification, which means he could be hired as a cop elsewhere. Which he thinks will happen: “It doesn’t have to be Hollywood, but that was my home for a long time, there’s a lot of great cops there, family there, so I wanted to go back there.” And so ends a nine-year career with the Hollywood PD, because once upon a time he got flogged in front of a camera.
