Rosebud cop who confronted residents about speed trap warning signs is fired for working outside city limits
A Central Texas police officer was fired Monday and could be in more hot water.
The Rosebud Police Officer was fired for working outside city limits against orders. It's a rule he had reportedly broken multiple times.
On Saturday, the officer reportedly tried to take down a controversial speed trap sign along Highway 77 put up by some residents to warn drivers.
The officer got into a heated exchange with one of those residents who helped with the signs.
News Channel 25 talked to that fired officer Monday night on the phone, he said he was directed by a supervisor to either ticket or arrest the people responsible for the signs. He thought taking it down would cause the least problems.
