A Stoughton cop has resigned after hitting a strip joint on duty to try and meet "the worlds smallest porn star," putting an unapproved laser scope on his gun and lying to investigators, the towns police chief told the Herald today.
Officer Richard P. Bennett, 28, has stepped down after five officers reported he left his patrol to go to Alexs gentlemans club to meet "Bridget the Midget," a 3-foot, 9-inch tall porn star, Stoughton Police Chief Paul Shastany said.
Bennett, who was honored by the department in June for his work in helping catch an accused killer, also installed a laser sight on his department-issued handgun and then lied to investigators, the chief said.
"He modified his weapon without permission," Shastany said. "And when he was interviewed, was untruthful. If an officer is untruthful, you do not have a place in this organization."
Of the strip club visit, Shastany said: "He went there and left his beat and wanted to meet this person."
"This person" was Bridget Powers, a 29-year-old adult film star who performed at Alexs in June. Powers, known as Bridget the Midget, has been a guest on
The Howard Stern Show and has appeared in several pornographic films, as well as some mainstream movies, including "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" and "8 mm." Shastany said Bennett "resigned because he knew he would be terminated." A valid phone number for Bennett could not be found this morning.
The chief lauded officers who reported the alleged violations. The suburban department has been wracked by a widespread corruption scandal that led to the downfall of the previous chief.
"Officers in the department have been beat up and maligned by the actions of a few," Shastany said. "Officers, no less than five, reported this. Its an embarassment and an affront to their efforts to rebuild this department. I applaud them and this is an example where officers are working hard to hold themselves accountable and are not going to tolerate any wrongdoing."
“That’s Bridget the Midget/the queen of the blues”—Ray Stevens”
Sure it wasn’t Dukakis in drag?
ha! I would venture Dukakis is more in Billy Bulger territory, maybe 5’6”. In “lift” shoes...
Everything’s on YouTube
“She may be small, just two feet tall...she can sing she can dance she can really do it all...Here’s Bridget! The midget! The queen of the blues!”
This has the makings of a great short story.

What do they expect as result of the approved standards of living of Progressivism??
It's sadly funny every time there's a story of someone who gets busted for acting just like a Liberal by the system that insists that is the only acceptable standard to conduct oneself by.
Maybe he stopped by for a little head
Yep. I suspect this story is right up his alley. ;-)
And if she appeared in her birthday suit and ran off:
“Oh yes they call HER the Streak...”
you guys are pure evil...
The fire marshall always makes sure to inspect the exits during showtime in my town.
“Maybe he stopped by for a little head...”
Even my computer groaned...
I’m sure that’s where she got the name.
"...and the Colored Girls go, "Dooo Do Dooo Do Do Do Dooo DO Dooo Dooo do do doooo." (Cue the Sax)
Thanks now that’s on replay in my head
Wee Irish foreplay: “Brace yourself Bridget.”
I hope she has a flat top. Here, hold muh beer.
But for the grace of God, there go I. I mean, who in their right mind wouldn’t be tempted to lose their career over a midget porn star?
