911 Operator Fired After Cursing During Call

(AP) A Nashville 911 operator has been fired after saying during a call that he didn't "give a s---" about what happened to a woman who reported her ex-boyfriend was threatening her.

Emergency Communications Center spokeswoman Amanda Sluss said Wednesday that Frank Roth was in training during the February incident and was fired a month later.

Roth made the comments after promising police would arrive soon for a woman who called saying her ex-boyfriend held her at knifepoint and later was threatening her.

After hanging up, he said, "I really don't give a s--- what happens to you."

Nashville TV station WTVF first reported the story after one of its reporters found a 911 recording with a notation requesting a supervisor's action for an inappropriate comment.
