VIDEO: Park ranger fired for dancing on the job


A park ranger in Tennessee is out of a job because he apparently brought his dancing shoes to work.  Deryl Nelson tells WRCB-TV he was fired by his supervisors at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga after a visitor recorded a video of him dancing on the job and posted it online. 

According to News Channel 9, the woman who filmed the clip claimed Nelson was "grabbing areas" you would see in an R-rated movie.  But Nelson claims he was only having a little "clean fun" and wasn't doing any "bumping and grinding."  Nelson was nevertheless terminated for "conduct unbecoming of a public employee," but he says he plans to keep dancing because "it's all about enjoying what you do."
