Colorado Spring, CO. (AP) -- Colorado Springs police are disputing allegations that they misled a judge about officers drinking alcohol at Hooters during a bar investigation. Police Chief Richard Myers says there are no indications his officers lied during testimony after a liquor code violation was filed against Hooters. The City Attorney's office dismissed the alleged liquor code violation against Hooters on Friday after a lawyer for Hooters produced a video that he said disputes the detectives' assertions in a police report. According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, police investigating compliance of liquor laws are allowed to purchase and consume alcohol as part of their job. Myers said there's no proof that the detectives in this case stepped outside of bounds.

    What does "Obamanation" have to do with this article? Obviously a racist and an idiot. THIS is why citizens (many) do not trust the cops. They lied, drank ALL day (at several other places),and the city COVERS IT UP!! Wow, thieves and liars demanding truth and justice!!

        This has nothing to do with freedom or terrorists. Do you know of any other job you can drink at and not get fired?? Police officers should not be allowed to drink on the job, as alcohol impares judgement. You should really think before you speak!

          Just trying to joke about the situation. It is depressing, more so because I'm old enough to remember when they were helpful and friend to citizens. Now it seems they exist only to extract fines and fees to keep the system going.
