Cops Fired For Going To Strip Club On Duty

Tampa cops Antonio Ortega and Paul Madsen, members of an elite undercover squad, arrived at the Penthouse Club, a Tampa strip club, one afternoon last November and started drinking before work at 1:30 p.m. while surrounded by naked dancers and continued drinking there until 8:00 that night, reports WTSP CBS News-10 in Tampa.

At the start of their shift the Police Chief said the cops told their supervisor they were out in the field on the clock.

When other cops finally got hold of this duo and found out their true location ‘out in the field,’ they arrived at the strip club and reportly found them to be “highly intoxicated,” according to the report.
