A police officer is suing the Beverly Hills Police Department for allegedly punishing him after he reported a fellow officer for joking about Whitney Houston's dead body. TMZ reports that Sgt. Brian Weir has filed suit against the department, claiming that fellow officer Sgt. Terry Nutall took off the sheet covering Houston while investigating the death and said "Damn, she's still looking good, huh?"
Weir says he came forward with the complaint and was fired from his positions on the SWAT and K-9 teams as punishment. He also says he was denied promotions and other benefits.
