Newly-released body camera footage shows part of an April crash that totaled two Washington DC police cars after they were allegedly drag racing.
The release of the footage this week comes amid an Office of the Attorney General probe that could result in charges against the officers involved in the race down a residential street.
At least one officer has been fired due to the incident.
“Obviously those types of things are unacceptable, they’re embarrassing,” Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert Contee told reporters at a Monday news conference, a Fox 5 DC video showed.
“It’s not something that we tolerate,” Contee added. “It’s certainly something that I do not tolerate as the chief of the Metropolitan Police Department.”
There were four cops involved in the crash, two in each vehicle, and the one who was terminated was a probationary employee, according to an announcement from the department accompanying the video.
