COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Colorado Springs police are disputing allegations that they misled a judge about officers drinking alcohol at Hooters during a bar investigation.

Police Chief Richard Myers says there are no indications his officers lied during testimony after a liquor code violation was filed against Hooters.

The City Attorney’s Office dismissed the alleged liquor code violation against Hooters on Friday after a lawyer for Hooters produced a video that he said disputes the detectives’ assertions in a police report.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, police investigating compliance of liquor laws are allowed to purchase and consume alcohol as part of their job. Myers said there’s no proof that the detectives in this case stepped outside of bounds.

    If that’s the law somebody needs to change it.
    That is stupid.
    Don’t tell me that cops have to drink at Hooters to be undercover.
    That’s garbage, there are a lot of people that don’t drink at Hooters or any other restaraunt for that matter.
    They can do their undercover without drinking.
    Now maybe at a bar?????
    Not at Hooters folks, don;t insult our intelligence!
    As I recall the story they consumed quite a bit as well.
    They are dangerous enough without adding alcohol.
    Just what we want is a armed cop with alcohol in them.
    Oh I forgot they are better than the rest of us and that would be fine because they are so smart and all.
