Police officer under fire for filming himself whilst driving
A Zurich municipal police officer is in trouble after a video emerged of him filming himself driving a new patrol car.
Identified only as Stefen, the 53-year-old was taking the car back to base – and he filmed himself very excitedly as he loved it – calling it awesome.
Although that was back in 2018, it’s now going viral.
It’s no small matter – drivers using a phone at the wheel can be fined or even lose their licence for serious offences.
The officer says he can’t remember the incident and refuses to comment further.
Zurich cantonal police say they are investigating.
