Two Montreal police officers caught with tipsy young women in their cruiser outside a bar have been suspended, almost two years after photos and a video of the incident went viral.
One of the photos appeared to show one of the women sitting on an officer’s lap. The short video appeared to show promiscuity, according to a Quebec Police Ethics Committee decision made public Monday.
One of the officers — Marc Berthiaume — was suspended for two days for unprofessional conduct. The second officer — Jason Richer — was suspended for nine days for unprofessional conduct and failing to give one of the women a breathalyzer test. The suspensions are without pay.
