A Sanford police officer was relieved of duty after he was caught on video singing, while in uniform, on stage at a death metal band’s concert.

Police said Officer Andrew Ricks attended the Vital Remains show at West End Trading Company while in uniform on Nov. 13.

Reports said Ricks joined the band on stage and sang a song called “Dechristianize,” which included the lyrics “Let the killing begin.”

The incident was caught on camera, and a copy was sent to Police Chief Cecil Smith.
