VIDEO: Ohio Cop Dunks Head In Urine

A Mentor (Ohio) Police Department officer brought "a negative light" to his department when a YouTube video showed him dunking his head in a bucket of urine at a football tailgate party, his chief told WTSP.

Mentor Police Chief Daniel Llewellyn suspended Officer Phil Croucher for two days for the stunt that occurred before a Cleveland Browns football game, reports the Ohio News-Herald.

The chief also issued written reprimands to nine other officers, including a lieutenant and two sergeants, who were present and contributed to the $450 pot Croucher earned for the stunt.

What a role model, I bet your family is so proud, as is your department and Chief. dumb ass.

So? He's a moron. Why does that make him any less idiotic than what other officers do on their off time? Half the neighboring departments are corrupt, and they're still working!

I don't get all the hateful comments. So what? Yes, it's gross. But I've seen guys do equally dumb stuff... because THEY'RE GUYS. It's what guys do. And at a football game, nonetheless.

Ok, so it was stupid, and disgusting, but who cares? It's just guys being dumb.

And I know some of you pious idiots out there are going to say "Well I'm a male and I'd never do something this stupid, blah blah blah"... Yeah, ok. In your entire life you've never done something retarded to make your friends laugh or win a bet... Sure... I believe that.

The point is officers are held to a higher standard. Public stunts like these leave a black mark on the department's reputation and diminish the community's respect for officers. If you want to dunk your head in urine, don't post the video online for all to see.

Yeah it was stupid, and gross, but for him to be given a suspension that's a little harsh. He wasn't in uniform and he wasn't hurting anyone else. The suspension should go to the DUMBASS who posted it on youtube or any other social network.
