See this is how all the rumors get started in town. Geeze ppl call the PD and find out instead of posting and getting half truths or starting crap when you don't know anything.

The department took care of it and that's all that matters. Henderson PD is a great deparment with wonderful police officers. Every one makes mistakes and has a lapse in judgment at some point, even police officers. Unfortunately this great deparment is not immune from the mistakes officers make while off duty. They took care of it. The officers are gone, that's all that matters. God bless them and the HPD

As *Leave It Alone* said, they used poor, off-duty judgment and it cost them their jobs. They - like you - make improper decisions in life. Did this incident make them bad officers? No. Does that mean "there must be a mess over there" (I presume your statement meant at the PD)? Absolutely not. When people make mistakes in their lives there are consequential outcomes. It's unfortunate because they were good officers, but the Chief had to follow through with his decision no matter how good they were in uniform. If he had looked the other way then people like you could keep yapping that "there must be a mess over there."

They got a little too "chatty" at the Baymont bar. Falsely accused someone of being an underaged drinker and had the police called to have him arrested. He was over 21 and the son of a well-known citizen. Could've been an honest mistake? But it was the way they did it that was wrong - the excess alcohol was doing the talking and not the educated officers that they were. Thank goodness the on-duty officer handled it in a professional (sober) manner so that he didn't go down with them!
No names - doesn't matter now. Their punishment is enough without them being publicly mauled on Topix. Somebody else said they were good officers, and they were. One was even awarded "Officer Of The Year" at the last ceremony.

Why do you think there "must be a mess over there"?! People like you accuse first then get the information. Try to be a bit more positive. The PD is like any other business or organization - it has many many people and not 100% of those people is guaranteed to be 100% perfect! They DO have good officers and they DO have a fantastic executive staff. Let them do their jobs without ridicule.
well then

I would like to state some facts on this situation.

1. The offciers knew this young man at least the female did she has worked many wrecks with him and he had her cell # in his phone.

2. The young man was driving his vehicle registered to him, had his DL, SS, and credit cards in his name. They still said he failed to identify. He was mistaken for someone else!

3. The officers who called this in were drinkning and had been there a while the bartender can tell you that.

I myself after hearing the story from several people and not "gossip" these people were there. These officers screwed up and yes they got fired but this should have never happened in the first place. SHE knew exactly who he was and that's the bottom line. They are not above the law just because they carry a badge and gun and that's why so many people don't respect some of the law enforcement in this area. I want to know why they didn't get pulled over while leaving the bar is it not against the law to drink and drive? They already knew they were drinking so why didn't the other officer make them call a cab? Nope let a DWI go home because they are officers. Just isn't right. I have alot of respect for alot of our officers but the ones like this deserve nothing. The young man had never even had a traffic ticket. Come one take off the beer goggles before you make a phone call to the PD for backup maybe you will ge the "right man" next time.

No it is not your right. What do you need that information for, do you plan to wage some sort of attack on these people? All you need to know is that the PD took appropriate action and fired those fools.

I have every right to know their names,last time i checked it was a free country with free speech and if the names aren't revealed they could end up getting police officer jobs in another town,but i bet u already knew that that happens all the time hugh??
