Thought it was six sheets. Guess it depends on the size of your boat and NOT the motion of the ocean. Which means, cops have small dicks.

Man, what's the world coming to?! First they tell us you can't beat a confession out of suspects, then they tell us you can't kill someone to take them into custody, and now they tell us you can't show up drunk. What's next, we can't take bribes in return for protection?!

asile seat, please

The letter states three possible violations: engaging in activities that could discredit the sheriff's department; use of alcohol while on duty; and reporting for duty while intoxicated.
According to witnesses who don't want to be identified, Helmer staggered and was visibly drunk when he got out of his car. Witnesses also say Helmer was so intoxicated, he had to be driven home by another deputy.

Uh, what about Driving Under the Influence? Maybe they just forgot about that one.

I could not resist looking up the meaning and it is an old sailors expression a sheet is actually a rope, particularly one attached to the bottom corner of a sail (it actually comes from an Old English term for the corner of a sail). The sheets were vital, since they trimmed the sail to the wind. If they ran loose, the sail would flutter about in the wind and the ship would wallow off its course out of control.

DUDEMANBRO: You beat me to it. I was thinking of the same thing. DUI? Well, I guess that could also mean "Dumbass Under the Influence".
