Off Duty Cop Refuses Mandatory Drug Test in Front of Supervisors!!!
Bossier, LA- @Cop Watch obtained lapel footage of an incident involving an off duty Bossier City police officer being questioned by his supervisors. Off duty officer Travis Coker.
It started when a citizen called into 911 saying a Bossier City Police unit was driving erratically and hit a mailbox. Bossier City Police supervisors identified the unit and went to the area.
They contacted Coker in a grocery store parking lot. 3 supervisors were on scene. Coker denied any wrong doing and would not go directly to a drug test.
According to an Internal Affairs investigation, supervisors stated that Coker appeared under the influence of medication or substance.
Since Coker was off duty and outside Bossier City police jurisdiction, the investigation was only administrative in nature and not criminal. And because Coker was operating a city vehicle, supervisors ordered him to take a reasonable suspicion drug test pursuant to BCPD policy.
Coker was put on leave and an internal investigation found cause to fire him. Coker is expected to appeal his firing before the Civil Service Board in Louisiana.
