Washington, July 21 (ANI): A Massachusetts police officer has resigned from his post after he left his beat to watch the dwarf porn star "Bridget the Midget" perform.

Officer Richard P. Bennett, 28, had deserted his late-night patrol to visit Club Alex's, an adult venue in Stoughton, Mass., where Bridget "The Midget" Powers, billed as "the world's smallest porn star", was performing.

Bennett was in uniform at the time of his visit to Club Alex's and was reported to authorities by at least five other officers, said Stoughton Police Chief Paul Shastany.

According to the Patriot Ledger, Bennett then reportedly lied about the visit during an internal investigation into the incident.

"Mama told me there would be days like this. We are not red-faced. In fact, I am pretty proud [other officers] stepped up," Fox News quoted Shastany as saying.

Shastany said Bennett, who last month received a commendation for his work in a March murder case, resigned on June 30 rather than face disciplinary action. (ANI)
