A Chicago Police officer was accused of shooting at an off-duty copy while drunk and driving eratically.
The drunk officer was described as holding an open beer, which the off-duty officer noticed after showing his badge.
Prosecutors say the off-duty officer called 911 and followed the drunk officer. A few blocks later, the drunk officer aimed his gun at the off-duty officer and fired five shots.
The judge took this misconduct seriously, concerned that if this is the example of behavior shown by police who are hired as public servants, “how can we expect citizens to obey the law?”
