Everybody fantasizes about getting their 15 minutes of fame at some point or another, and for LAPD Officer Brett Goodkin that dream came true as he got to work on Sofia Coppola’s film, The Bling Ring!
The only problem is his moment in the spotlight may end up costing him his job!
Brett served as a technical advisor for the film, giving Sofia the scoop on how the police do their business, and he also got a few lines in a scene where he slaps some cuffs on Emma Watson! But his peers weren't so happy to hear about his big screen debut and now they want to give him the axe!
The issue is that the officer LIED to his boss about his role in the movie, and the reason that’s such a big deal is that the hearings for the ACTUAL Bling Ring robbers were also going down and he was working on BOTH at the same time!
Apparently the bright lights of Hollywood blinded his judgement, because that's a MAJOR no-no!
He will go before a disciplinary panel where his punishment will be decided, but to make matters even worse he’s also undergoing a second investigation for allegedly sending inappropriate messages to a witness in the actual robbery case!
We’re no lawyers, but it doesn’t look too good for Brett!
On the bright side, if the police officer thing doesn’t end up working out, maybe he can give acting a try! LOLz!
