The Baton Rouge Police Department has fired an officer for an assault in Tigerland earlier this year.
Officer Marshall McDermitt was stripped of his weapon and badge after a video surfaced showing him repeatedly punching a bloodied man outside a bar near LSU.
McDermitt was suspended last year for his use of obscenities around the public while on duty.
A police union attorney says the officer plans to appeal his termination.
