A sheriff’s deputy in Jackson County, Mississippi, was fired last week after he was allegedly recorded saying that he gets “paid to beat up n—–s,” the Clarion-Ledger newspaper reported Friday.

During a heated dispute that took place using voice chat over the multiplayer gaming platform XBox Live, the former deputy, Michael Slater, allegedly announced his address and told an opponent: “You about to come to a f—–g paid police officer’s house. I get paid to beat up n—-rs like you.”

The profanity-laden exchange was recorded and posted to The Free Thought Project website.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Cherie Ward said the department fired the three-year veteran as soon as the recording came to its attention.

“We don’t condone that type of behavior or language,” she told the newspaper.

The newspaper said it tried to reach Slater on Friday but was unsuccessful. The paper did not mention Slater’s race.
