BANGKOK — Thai police are investigating a traffic cop who was filmed admitting that he was "a little bit drunk" while manning a road checkpoint in Bangkok last week.
The video, filmed on a phone and posted on social media over the weekend, shows the officer speaking incoherently to a motorist who he waved down at the checkpoint, prompting the driver to ask if he was drunk.
The following is an excerpt from their conversation:
Officer: I am drunk, but I don't drive!
Motorist: But you are a cop. You are on duty.
Officer: I know.
Motorist: So you're really drunk?
Officer: Well, a little bit drunk.
The officer then scolds the driver for recording the encounter, and challenges him to "go ahead and share it" on social media.
