"Over __ Days Since Our Last Gaffe!"

An IMPD officer was arrested the other day. Was it for:
A. Streaking
B. Filling In A Wetland Without An EPA Permit
C. Operating A Vehicle While Intoxicated

If you guessed "C", you're absolutely right! Once again, it is proven that the letters stand for "I Must Patrol Drunk". (And while we're on the subject of drunken Indianapolis cops, there's still a stick through the spokes of the wheels of justice in the matter of IMPD Officer David "Bottles" Bisard.)

Ah, IMPD! As long as you keep doing this, I'll never lack for blogfodder.

I don’t understand what is going on with your local LEA on this DWI by LEO matter. Wrong is wrong and a LEO is expected to be held to a higher standard of conduct. W/O exception every LEO in my agency arrested for PI or DWI over the course of my 25+ years has resigned or been fired after conviction. They were immediately relieved from duty status when arrested and placed on leave. No credentials, badge, weapon, stripped of LE authority. BTW, no desk duty or other fill in work either, once their leave time was gone no paycheck either. Is this harsh given many other prominent citizens or like can waltz through such an arrest with indifference, no, the LEO knows better.

Hmmm, trying to make up for past mistakes?

SB,

Do cops need CDLs?

Maybe to drive the SWAT bus.

In the greatest movie of all time "SWAT" LL Cool J had to have a CDL.

I was hoping for an A & C combo. Those guys need to up their game.

And B? C'mon, you've gotta be bordering on terroristic Republican to stoop that low.

They really should try mixing it up a little (not just the cocktails). This is too easy.

Hey, at least in Indy they arrest them when they catch them breaking the law. Better than a lot of places.

Tam, In reference to the CDL question, for car's and SUV type vehicles, then no CDL is required. For large commercial type box vans or buses, it depend's on whether it is marked as a police vehicle with emergency lights or what the indvidual state requires.

It will be added to the State Sponsored Criminal Count tonight.

We recently had a local PD of over 30 years service go for a drive in a patrol car north for a couple of hundred miles in Wyoming and get picked up drunk.

Supposedly going to South Dakota to attend a funeral, no one has admitted authorizing the use of a patrol car for the road trip.

He suddenly retired.

I'd be less disturbed if they took up streaking.

Suddenly I don't feel so bad about the NOPD...
