The impaired Aurora (Colo.) Police Department officer who was arrested driving his patrol car with another officer to a police funeral in South Dakota has resigned and retired.

Officer Bradley Bickett and Gerald Kirby were pulled over near Torrington, Wyo., by a Goshen County Sheriff's deputy. Officer Kirby was tossing beer cans out of the cruiser's window.

The officers were on their way to the memorial service in Rapid City, S.D., for an officer who was killed in the line of duty.

Throwing beer cans out of your patrol car while impaired is right up there with the officer who took off his uniform while on duty to join the ladies in the hot tub party.

Like my friend Ron White always says, "You can't fix stupid!!"
