Phoenix police officer 'retires' for running porn site

PHOENIX - A Phoenix police officer decided to retire instead of being fired for running a porn website.

Sgt. Mark Zeller retired in December of 2011 after a disciplinary review board recommended his termination after discovering his connection to the site which he allegedly ran with his wife.

Zeller allegedly managed the site and was in some of the videos.

Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said, "It's not illegal to run a website like that, but it does not match the standards of being a Phoenix police officer."

The review board was made up of two peers, two commanders and two civilians.

Zeller did not lose his police certification which means he could apply to be a police officer in another city.
