WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan made headlines after last week his Facebook account shared a video of himself and Jimmy Hart receiving a ride in a police squad car on the tarmac of O’Hare International Airport.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the officer who drove them with his sirens on is now under investigation by the department’s Bureau of Internal Affairs.
A spokesman for police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, Anthony Guglielmi, issued a statement where he noted that officer will lose a special certification that allows officers to drive vehicles on the tarmac. He didn’t elaborate on if the officer had been relieved of his police duties.
“The activity and behavior demonstrated in that video poses a significant risk to the officers and overall aviation safety on the airfield,” Guglielmi said. “The superintendent was furious about what he saw.”
In the video, the officer indicated he was given permission to drive Hogan and Hart around. You can watch it here:
