    A couple of drinks with dinner': Chicago police chief found asleep in his car

    'A couple of drinks with dinner': Chicago police chief found asleep in his car | US news | The Guardian

    Eddie Johnson says incident related to medication
    Mayor’s comments differ from first official explanation


    The top police officer in Chicago told the mayor he had “a couple of drinks with dinner” before he fell asleep at a stop sign while driving home on Thursday, an incident the chief contends was related to a change in his blood pressure medication.

    Superintendent Eddie Johnson did not mention having anything to drink when he spoke to reporters on Thursday night and a department spokesman said then officers who responded to a 911 call reporting a man asleep in a car at a stop sign did not observe any signs of impairment.
    ================================================== ==========
    And this guy is black.

    Changing medication? To Southern Comfort on the rocks?

    It seems that an alert and highly trained police officer finding a vehicle parked at a stop sign, with its driver asleep at the wheel, might have noticed some impairment of traffic flow.
