Apparently whatever it is that makes our local police get liquored up and drive around in their squad cars is spreading from the city into the 'burbs.
Yesterday, in suburban Hancock County, a sheriff's deputy crashed his squad car on duty and subsequently blew a .16 on the ol' breathalyzer. As an added bonus, he'd been on duty for almost four hours before the test, so either he came to work really sloshed, or he'd been tipping back a few wet ones on the job. I suppose he can take solace in the fact that if HCSD gives him the axe, he's got just the resume for the IMPD.
(As an added bonus, the linked article actually has someone in the comments calling for alcohol prohibition. 'Cause it's all demon rum's fault, see?)
