A police officer in the United States has been reprimanded after he tried to download a copy of a pirate movie to his squad car.
The officer, who has not been named in line with department policy, tried to download ‘Hall Pass’, a comedy released this year starring Owen Wilson.
The date of the download was logged as May 18th but Hall Pass was only available on DVD from June 14th, meaning the officer must’ve tried to obtain either the TS or PPV rip versions already online.

He was suspended for 6 days.
