Sarni admitted to authorities that he went to a hotel room in uniform and with his sidearm and asked a woman to try on underwear for him. reports that a request to give Sarni full pay and benefits if he agreed to stay home was denied on Tuesday.

Sarni's attorney said his client, who has been suspended since 2013, risked losing some skills and would have to go back to the police academy after three years of suspension.

A township attorney says Sarni will be retrained and returned to work if he passes a fitness test.
