Police officer suspended for working as stripper
13 October 2005
BARCELONA — Catalonia’s regional police has suspended for two years without pay an officer who moonlighted as a stripper, doing gigs at bachelor parties in which he would take off his policeman’s uniform.
According to the Spanish newspaper El Periodico de Cataluña, following 20 months of investigation, the force’s internal affairs department concluded the officer committed two grave offenses: stripping down from his regulation uniform while off duty, and charging for it.
The department launched its investigation when in February of last year it received photographs from an anonymous source in which the policeman appeared first in his uniform and then naked inside a bus full of women.
After confirming that he in fact worked as a stripper for a bachelor-party operation when he was not on duty, the department took disciplinary action against him.
The officer, age 28, was found to have violated two police regulations, one that bans “wearing official emblems without justifiable cause” and another prohibiting “incompatible” employment. EFE.
