Ahh Miami. A great place to unwind, catch some rays, enjoy the beach, and get run over by a drunk cop on his ATV. Wait what?
It gets better too. Apparently the cop was “hittin’ the sauce” with another officer on Sunday morning at a bar called The Clevelander. The officer then took a woman on the back of his ATV and went “joyriding” on the beach.
It would have been a pretty great way to spend a Sunday. Unfortunately, the cop made a pretty big party foul when he plowed his 4 wheeler into a couple of peaceful beachgoers.
The officer on the ATV struck two people, a man and a woman. Police spokeswoman Officer Deborah Doty said that afterward three people were taken to hospital. One woman was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. Another woman was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center, where she was treated and released. The man also was taken to Mount Sinai, she said.
The officer who barreled his ATV into pedestrians has been relieved of duty pending the results of the different investigations.
