IgG4: I would think that all cop cars would be equipped with a fire extinguisher.
2wolves: Why didn't he shoot it?

IRQ12: "Henderson police, which has opened an internal investigation into the incident, said there was no indication Simo had been drinking. "I'm guessing that he was high as F on something else.
Dragonflew: FTFA: Simo was suspended with pay after a Review-Journal story about the incident was published Monday evening, five days after the incident.And there it is. Are cops just trying to find the most creative way to get paid vacations these days?
fireclown: FTFA:**snip It's unclear whether Simo was given a field sobriety test or an alcohol breath test. Henderson spokesman Keith Paul said that information would be part of the internal case. **snipSo, they didn't give any kind of sobriety test? The officers who responded should be horsewhipped for negligence.
Harry Freakstorm: Unfortunately, the water bottles were filled with grain alcohol.
macadamnut: It's unclear whether Simo was given a field sobriety test or an alcohol breath test.I think I can clarify that.
redmid17: No they should be fired, but the union contract probably doesn't allow for it this quickly. At best they didn't do basic procedures to establish if a crime had been committed. Given that the guy drove 1.5 miles on his rim and there was a witness onsite, he should have at least gotten a citation for reckless driving or something. At worst, they actively covered up several criminal actions because they could/code of silence/their buddy/whatever.
Earguy: Worst DirecTV ad ever.
fireclown: The caller told the dispatcher that he suspected that the driver was drunk. I'm pretty sure (and if I'm wrong I am sure a FARK legal ace will set me straight) that constitutes cause for a brethalyzer test.
SploogeTime: I would actually pay $10 to watch a cop die in a car fire. No, I would not help them.
The_Original_Roxtar: what the headline reminded me of:A Chief Petty Officer shall not drink. However, if he should drink he shall not get drunk. If he should get drunk, he shall not stagger. And if he should stagger, he shall not fall. And if he should fall, he will fall in such a manner as to cover up his rank so that passersby will think he is an officer.
