Quebec Provincial Police - Surete du Quebec - Caught On Video Sleeping In Car - Then Ticket Videographer
...en francais ...
"MONTREAL — An amateur videographer captured what appeared to be two Surete du Quebec officers taking a snooze in the back of their patrol car on Thursday morning.
The 22-second YouTube video, sent in to Trois-Rivieres radio station NRJ 102.3 by a man identified only as "Max," reportedly was shot early Thursday along Highway 40 just outside Trois-Rivieres, about 150 kilometres northwest of Montreal.
The man reported that he noticed a patrol car parked on the side of the highway, but couldn't see anyone inside. Concerned there might be something amiss, the radio station reported that Max pulled over and walked up to the vehicle. When he saw the officers lying down inside, he quickly grabbed a camera.
The video shows one of the officers noticing he's being filmed. He quickly exits the patrol car.
The driver says he was asked for his licence and was given a ticket for having parked his vehicle illegally.
Sgt. Guy Lapointe said the force became aware of the incident at the same time as the media and the public, and immediately launched an investigation."
