Mic broadcasts audio of Memphis cop copulating in squad car
NOT THE SHARPEST KNIFE IN THE DRAWER: Bad enough Memphis Police Officer Dion Anthony (allegedly) had sex in his squad car while on duty, but audio of the assignation was broadcast on an open radio channel that could be heard by other officers in his precinct but also by anyone with a police scanner, FOX 13 reports:
Sergeant Karen Rudolph says every Memphis Police Officer is given two modes of radio communication: a shoulder microphone that stays with them and a console mic that stays in their squad car.
"Rather than picking up the phone, we use what's given to us with our consoles and microphones. A lot of times it's our life lines," she said.
There's no word yet on which microphone our sources say broadcast Officer Dion Anthony having sex in his squad car while on duty. But there is a recording because Sgt. Rudolph says every radio communication is recorded.
Anthony has been relieved of duty pending the outcome of an investigation into the incident. The identity of his sex partner remains unknown.
