Former Los Angeles traffic cop John Dancler is trying to get his job back.

He was fired in July 2011 after he and another traffic cop appeared in a porn movie while on duty and in uniform.

Dancler made his appeal Wednesday to the Los Angeles Civil Service Commission.

He told the commission's investigator that the appearance wasn't planned.

"I was caught totally unaware," Dancler said.

He went on to describe being approached by the crew while responding to a call for back-up from another officer.

He admitted that he made a big mistake, saying "It wasn't the best thing I've ever done."

Dancler also admitted under questioning that he never reported the incident to his supervisor.

A decision is expected sometime within the next month.
