Scores of New York City police are accused of going on a drunken rampage, groping women and firing automatic weapons in the air while in Washington, D.C., for ceremonies honoring fallen comrades.
Several thousand officers from around the country were in the nation's capital last weekend to attend the services for police killed in the line of duty.The New York Times reported that up to 100 New York City officers joined in, some stealing license plates and firing weapons in the air at the downtown Hyatt and at least four other hotels.
Some female hotel guests were grabbed and groped, The Washington Post reported. Officers claiming to be federal agents tried to force their way into the hotel rooms of some female guests, New York Newsday said.
Police Commissioner William Bratton said any officers involved should be fired.
