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.
