An unfortunate photo snapped 11 years ago of a cop with a bare-bottomed porn star could cost the Georgia officer his job.

The Daily Mail reports that back at the turn of the 2000s the woman was performing at a local strip joint. For some reason officers posed her near a squad car, and Thaddeus Lloyd decided it would be a good idea to be photographed grabbed her bare buttocks.

Lloyd, who was then an officer with the Clarkston Police Department and is now a senior sheriff's deputy with the Walton County Sheriff's office, said he was not on duty at the time.

The photo surfaced recently on a cell phone that an inmate somehow got into prison, and now Lloyd is suspended with pay while the incident is being investigated.

"I regret it. I didn't know nothing about it," Lloyd told Atlanta's WSB-TV.

His current boss feels badly for Lloyd.

"I hate all this for that deputy, but you've got to live by what you do," Walton Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
