British cops busted for sledding on their riot shields

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bobbies on tobbagans is not in keeping with the classic British reserve, it seems.

These Oxfordshire coppers, taking a break to enjoy the snow using their riot shields - inventive! - as sleds got a stern talking-to from their commanding officer who does not see the humor (humour?) in his boys acting like boys.

Local policing area commander Supt. Andrew Murray said the snow had "a habit of bringing out the child in all of us. I have spoken to the officers concerned and reminded them in no uncertain terms that tobogganing on duty, on police equipment and at taxpayers' expense is a very bad idea should they wish to progress under my command"

So back to beating on soccer hooligans, fellas. Break's over.
