MIAMI -

A Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney has been fired after a bizarre incident at a local strip club.

Assistant State Attorney Ari Pregen was fired after he allegedly flashed his badge and demanded freebies at Goldrush in Downtown Miami.

Pregen was fired nearly 2 weeks ago after the owner of Goldrush complained about Pregen's behavior.

The club provided security camera pictures, which reportedly showed Pregen flashing his Prosecutor's badge.

Pregen later apologized to Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, but he wasn't given back his job.
