Former officer Sean Bostwick was let go according to Detroit police chief James Craig, who revealed the news during a press conference regarding the matter. Craig said “He was terminated. This is his last day on our payroll. Tomorrow, he will no longer be a Detroit, police officer. He is clear on that.”

Bostwick’s caption on his post said: “Another night to [wrangle] up these zoo animals.” A former Detroit police officer caught wind of the post and shared it to his Facebook with the caption “This is a newly appointed Detroit Police Officer. The caption speaks for itself.”

James Craig noted he met with Bostwick in person to let him know that he was being fired as a result of the post.
