Police plead guilty in beer bash hearing Peel police officers most heavily involved in an off-duty beer bash began entering guilty pleas for discreditable conduct at a discipline hearing Thursday.
Peel police officers most heavily involved in an off-duty beer bash began entering guilty pleas for discreditable conduct at a discipline hearing Thursday.
One-by-one, most of the 14 officers, including two sergeants began appearing before Acting Superintendent Blair Foley, as Crown prosecutor Linda Bordeleau gave her recommendation for penalties.
After four cases the penalties range from four to six days of work without pay. Sentencing is scheduled for June 12.
Two dozen peel region police officers were involved in a parking lot beer party on Dundas St. West in Mississauga after midnight last August 27, Bordeleau told the hearing.
At one point, some of them noticed two men watching them from a roof. One had a video camera. The officers yelled at the two Richard Cimposeau, 24, and Orlando Canizalez, 21. Later, when the party was down to 14 officers, some of them spotted the pair again in some trees overlooking the parking lot. Several officers gave chase, arrested and then released the men.
The charges against most of the officers involve not identifying themselves as police, not giving a reason for detention, not taking notes, illegal drinking, and not calling an officer on duty.
