A pair of Tasmanian police officers did a good deed by taking a drunk safely home. The officers did one better by taking a selfie with the tipsy man… for posterity.
Tasmania Police responded in a Facebook post to a viral photo on Reddit showing two officers posing for a selfie in front of a bed where an intoxicated man is giving a thumbs-up to the camera.
Tasmania Police Northern District Senior Sgt. Craig Fox said police don’t normally drive drunken partiers home.
“However police are always looking for a place of safety for anyone who is affected by alcohol,” Fox said. “On this occasion, police were contacted by a taxi company for assistance in getting the man home. When police arrived, they found out his address, took the man home and waited for a friend to arrive to look after him.”
Bloody good work, officers. Thanks for making the profession look good.
