CLEVELAND - Officials say eight Cleveland city firefighters have been demoted or suspended for taking part in a prank that involved urinating on the photo of a former division chief.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group ( ) reports that the conduct of the firefighters ``brought dishonor to the ranks of fire officers,'' according to city safety director Martin Flask.

An investigation showed that the official photograph of a former chief was stolen from the Fire Training Academy in August and placed in urinals at two bars during a celebration held in honor of newly-minted firefighters.

A summary of the investigation said ``numerous members of the public and family members of the graduates, including children, were exposed to this despicable and reprehensible act.''
