Canton cop fired after caught on tape tirade

CANTON, OH (WOIO) -

New details on a Canton cop who was caught on his cruiser dash cam going berserk during a traffic stop.

Police say Officer Daniel Harless has been fired. This, after he berated and threatened a man who failed to tell the officer he had a gun and a concealed weapons permit in June.

"As soon as I saw your gun, I should have taken two steps back pulled my glock 40 and just put ten bullets in your a** and let you drop.  And I wouldn't have lost any sleep," Harless is heard screaming on the dash cam.

The safety director fired Harless on Tuesday, but Harless can appeal the decision.
