Indy cop photographed with beer

September 7, 2010

Just days after Mayor Greg Ballard announced a "zero-tolerance" policy for officers involved with alcohol on duty, a Facebook user posted a photo of a uniformed Indianapolis officer attending Rib America with a cold beer in his hand. The photo shows the officer, a veteran reserve patrolman, holding a 24-ounce can of Bud Light on Sunday near a rib stand. Lt. Jeff Duhamell said the officer was not drinking the beer. "He was asked to hold the beer and napkins and utensils for a guy putting rib sauce on his ribs," he said.
