NEW ORLEANS- Two New Orleans police officers have been fired for misconduct while on duty.

The Times Picayune reports Officer Carey Dykes, a 13-year veteran, was fired this past week for numerous violations, including having sex with a woman while on the clock, sleeping while on duty and disregarding his police work.

Also, Officer Rydell Diggs, a nine-year veteran, was fired for allegedly beating a man and lifting cash from his wallet during a 2007 traffic stop in the Carrollton neighborhood. Diggs was prosecuted for the charges last year and acquitted in Criminal District Court in a one-day judge trial.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas approved and signed off on the dismissals.

Both officers can appeal the terminations.
