A Twin Peaks restaurant advertises scantily dressed waitresses and a “fun, friendly and sometimes flirty atmosphere.” It was a bit too much for Texas police officers who had a waitress pose on their police cruiser holding an assault rifle. Sheriff Gary Painter fired one officer Daniel Subia, 30, and suspended three others.
The spontaneous photo op might have passed unnoticed until customers called the police about a waitress walking around with an assault weapon. When the police arrived, they learned other officers had armed the waitress when they went to the restaurant during a training session near Austin. The restaurant which promises “double your pleasure” succeeded in pleasing the officers a bit too much for Sheriff Painter’s taste. Miguel Valdes Ramos, 31; Ronald Eugene Wright, 37; and 34-year-old Christopher Lee Evans have all been suspended for three days without pay.
Subia was the officer who retrieved the gun from the trunk of one of the vehicles. All of the officers were in civilian clothes, here.
This is, however, not the first officers undone by the combination of booze, scantily clad women, and guns. Previously, it was five officers at a Hooters that took an unfortunate photographic turn, here.
