[su_right_ad]The Indiana police officer is being investigated for delivering his son his lunch by pulling over the school bus in which he was riding.

According to a police report, Lt. Brian Keller, who the Chicago Tribune notes is one of the “formerly top-ranking officers” for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, allegedly pulled over a school bus outside his jurisdiction, using an unmarked police vehicle with emergency lights. “The apparent purpose of the stop was to issue his son his lunch for the day,” the report, filed by the bus driver, states.

In a statement, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office acknowledged they were investigating Keller for misconduct. No one else involved in the story — the bus driver, the school district, the mortified child, etc. — commented, but we can easily imagine how the son, purportedly in high school, must have felt about his cool dad pulling his cool dad moves using the authority granted to him by the government, borne out a Hobbesian social pact between the people surrendering their autonomy for the sake of order.[su_csky_ad]

    He didn’t beat, taser or kill anyone. It may not be newsworthy, but it is progress!

      I agree, no real harm caused but it sure leaves a bad taste. Just another example of how the rules are merely suggestions to those wearing a badge.

    I hope he receives as serious a punishment as his transgression merits. Something like “Hey man, don’t do that again please.”

      Accompanied, of course, by a moderate slap on the wrist…

        Agree, not sure what I what I was thinking. It’s too strong a punishment. Instead his chief should give him a stern look, shake his head once, then say “Hey, grab me a Coke out of the break room when you get a chance, would ya?”
