GUY, Ark. (AP) - The Guy Police Department has fired a part-time police officer after he was arrested last week on suspicion of Internet stalking of a child.

Chief Dave Martini says the department terminated Josh George’s employment. Martini says he will ask the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training to decertify George as a police officer.

Faulkner County authorities say George was arrested after he allegedly tried to meet two children for sex. Police say it was a sting arranged by investigators and no children were involved.

George was also fired from the Arkansas Community Correction Department, where he was undergoing training as a correctional officer.

The Log Cabin Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1qYf7o8 ) George remains jailed and is due in court April 21. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.
