AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio sheriff's deputy has been fired for ordering five jail inmates to dance to a song by Usher in exchange for privileges such as using a phone or microwave.

Media outlets citing an internal report say the Summit County sheriff fired the 35-year-old deputy this week for mistreating inmates, acting inappropriately and having a cellphone in the jail, apparently used to play the music.

The report says the deputy invited colleagues to watch April 11 as inmates danced. The Akron Beacon Journal reports one inmate did the worm, while another said he did the robot so he could use the phone to contact relatives after a family member's death.

Investigators say the deputy admitted his mistake but said he was only trying to ease tension in the jail.

A lot of those deputies and jailers mistreat the inmates. I'm glad something was done and not just swept under the rug.
