Las Vegas Air Unit Probed for Guitarist's Proposal Ride

August 13, 2013  | 

An internal investigation is under way after a rock guitarist and his girlfriend were given a private tour of Las Vegas in a police helicopter for a wedding proposal.

DJ Ashba, lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses, posted photos of the tour on social media Saturday.

Ashba gave a shout-out to Capt. David O'Leary for setting up the tour. A Las Vegas Metro Police spokesman confirmed the internal investigation Sunday morning, although no details were released.

But department officials reportedly were livid about the apparent misuse of the helicopter, especially in the wake of an officer's death involving a helicopter last month.

Some cops are just plain idiots. Did Capt. O'Leary not think that the world was going to find out. In my experience the captain should be terminated and the pilot suspended for 30 days.

I have to wonder why a confidential police investigation was made public by the police administration. There is now the need for two investigations.
