GULFPORT, Miss. -

A K-9 cop in Mississippi is out of a job because he liked to have too much fun, police said.

While the Belgian Malinois could sniff out bombs and drugs, police say he was easily distracted.

For example, while searching a building Fred might spot a soda can on the floor and start playing with it.

Department officials say they've tried sending the canine back to school but it didn't take.

Fred will go back to his original training team.
