Stoj: Indianapolis PD, which I believe has ~1,500 officers - get to drive their marked police cars home with them?
dpaul007: Best. Mugshot. Ever.
SquiggsIN: Stoj: Indianapolis PD, which I believe has ~1,500 officers - get to drive their marked police cars home with them?Yes, they do. And we still buy most of their gas, IIRC. This guy lives in Monrovia (I was there yesterday) which is a tiny town of barely 1000 about 20 miles west of Indy. So he probably has been driving drunk back and forth on I-70 from home to work for years. (Scary because i'm on the same stretch of interstate a lot)

Cdr.Murdock: lizyrd: It's also a taxable benefit, just like anyone else who has a company car.BZZZT, Wrong:"Qualified nonpersonal use vehicles.All of an employee's use of a qualified nonpersonal use vehicle is a working condition benefit. A qualified nonpersonal use vehicle is any vehicle the employee is not likely to use more than minimally for personal purposes because of its design. Qualified nonpersonal use vehicles generally include all of the following vehicles.Clearly marked, through painted insignia or words, police, fire, and public safety vehicles.Unmarked vehicles used by law enforcement officers if the use is officially authorized."Source: IRS publication 15-B, page 21.Take home cars for law enforcement are NOT a taxable benefit. I tried to post a link, but it got all farked up coming off Deh Googles.
gopher321: D) Picking up a transformer hooker?
SquiggsIN: zepher: Yet another reason to hold cops in such high esteem.I'm surprised they even arrested the guy and didn't just drive him home.who is to say that he hasn't had that benefit on multiple prior occasions and that his comrades in blue weren't willing to offer it again?
