Two Atlanta police officers are “off duty” after getting into a
drunken brawl at a bar over who could run faster. LOL!
The argument got so heated that it resulted in the two coppers going outside to fist fight, and one copper allegedly pulling his gun on the other!
You CAN’T make this stuff up. This has drunken written all over it.
Wouldn’t the more befitting thing to do to settle the score have been to just go outside and race? Winner takes all.

According to Channel 2 news– A local police officer is suspended and another has resigned after the two men got into a fight.
Investigators say the Atlanta police officers started arguing at the R. Thomas Deluxe Grill in Buckhead around 5 a.m. last Friday. The two were arguing over who could run faster.
Officers Stephen Green and Joseph Tyer decided to go outside where they started fighting.
According to a police report, Green said tension escalated, and Tyer told him, “I’m going to punch you in the face.”
The co-workers then began physically fighting, until other officers broke it up.
Officers say Tyer allegedly pulled his gun. No shots were fired.
Green has been relieved of duty, but is still being paid as the investigation unfolds. He’s been worked at the department for more than four years.
Tyer resigned Wednesday. He worked at the department for more than three years.
There’s an ongoing investigation within the police department and on a criminal level.
