Remember the story about the cop who tossed a teargas canister at his rivals during a Houston Rodeo barbecue cook-off last February? Well, the verdict is finally in on his punishment: He's been fired like a rack of raw baby-backs -- canned like a batch of baked beans.
The officer in question, Mike Hamby, 52, a senior police officer with the burglary and theft division of the Houston Police Department, was officially relieved of duty on June 17. He had been on indefinite suspension for the past several months, according to the Houston Chronicle. He has also resigned from the board of the Houston Police Officer's Union.
