A detective in Minnesota who suggested on Facebook somebody should have "stomped" a man's "guts out" was suspended one day for the comment.

KFGO reports Detective Jason Hicks wrote on Facebook, "Somebody should of stomped his guts out" – reportedly a reference to this Fargo case, when a man with a camera was seen apparently taking photos at a public park pool in July.

Police said the photographer wasn't actually doing anything illegal, but the Fargo Park District banned him from any of its pools or property anyway.

Hicks' actions, according to Valley News Live, were called a "direct violation" of department standards and ethics in a disciplinary letter from Sheriff Bill Bergquist.

The suspension is unpaid, and Hicks will also have to take social media ethics training, KVRR reports.

Hicks works in the Investigations/Narcotics office.
