Cops Frame Innocent People for DUI for the Overtime Pay?


According to reports from the Honolulu Star Advertiser, four police are facing charges for falsifying DUI arrests, and the reason they did it is for the overtime pay because they were working the checkpoints at night?!

See the story below:

"Four Honolulu police officers, charged with falsifying DUI arrest reports so that officers who weren’t pres­ent would qualify for possible overtime, have pleaded no contest and have the chance to clear the charges from their criminal records.

Duke Zoller and Aaron A. Bernal, both sergeants, and officers Christoper and Patrick Bugarin were members of what used to be called the Selective Enforcement Unit, which conducted nighttime DUI checkpoints. It’s now called the Night Enforcement Unit.

All four were scheduled to stand trial on charges of tampering with a government record and being an accomplice in state court Monday."

Thanks to the Honolulu Star Advertiser for the story.
