When we think of drunken police officers we usually picture them somewhere in Eastern Europe. But most recent men of the law that lost themselves in alcohol are from Morocco. That’s right, an Arab country that has no reputation at all when it comes to drunkards. But don’t let that fool you, 5 men (among who 2 members of the military police) were arrested recently in the town Mohammedia when they were caught drinking during work time. They weren’t too sneaky about it, since they were throwing their empty bottles at the people who passed by.
Two of the five men worked for a military unit from the Moroccan police. While on the clock they were hanging around a small Fiat car and drunk their beers in public. Meanwhile they had some fun throwing their empty bottles at passers. 2 of those victims complained about this behaviour to another special unit called “Soqor”, who acted immediately. But all they got from their drunk colleagues was a lot of insults and zero co-operation. With some necessary back up the Soqor was finally able to arrest the drunk officers.
The 5 men have to appear in court for drinking in public and insulting officers of the law. The 2 that were part of the military unit probably face a tough punishment since they have to appear in a military court.
