A video released by officials in Atlantic City this week shows Fire Chief Dennis Brooks going through a metal detector and dropping his pants around his thighs.

The bizarre behavior was captured by security cameras at the city's Public Safety Building. **Warning: This video may not be safe for work.**

Chief Brooks has been on administrative leave while the city looks into the incident.

An unnamed security person said she asked Brooks to empty all the metal from his pockets before going through a metal detector at the entrance of the building where Brooks works. He then dropped his pants, according to her allegations, and said, “I am having a bad day.”
