Former police officer Matthew Luckhurst, who had been fired from his job at the San Antonio Police after giving a homeless man a feces sandwich in 2016, was fired again - this time from the police department in Floresville, Texas, US sources reported last week.

The Mayor of Floresville said the city was flooded with complaints after reports came out that the disgraced officer had found employment at another police department.

"Matthew Luckhurst was released from employment with the Floresville Police Department yesterday Dec. 13," the mayor said in a statement.

"Our city manager, Andy Joslin, is implementing stricter hiring policies for all city of Floresville employees," KSAT reported.

Luckhurst was hired by the Floresville Police Department as a reserve officer just five months after his firing process in San Antonio had ended.

Luckhurst made headlines in 2016 when he reportedly tried to feed a homeless man human feces, which he smeared between slices of bread.

Because of the public outcry, the San Antonio city council ultimately revised its police contract to reduce the arbitrators' power to return fired cops. »
