A Bakersfield Police Officer was arrested and fired within days of graduating the Police Academy in what may be the shortest career a cop ever.
According a report by the Bakersfield Californian, Peter Martinez graduate from the police academy on August 15, 2014. That night around 9:00 pm Martinez was allegedly involved in a domestic violence incident. Five days later Martinez was arrested at police headquarters and terminated.
The article did not provide very much detail, but I would assume the police department had some fairly strong evidence against Martinez to terminate him so quickly. Most likely they ended his employment by simply failing his one year probationary period that most law enforcement agencies in California have. As a probationary employee the agency can terminate you for virtually any reason.
