On Monday night, Winnipeg's skies were filled with the majestic sight of the northern lights and, apparently, the far less majestic sound of some cops talking about their sex lives.
Media outlets have reported the conversation as "x-rated" and "off colour," but let's just be frank: they were talking about blow jobs, according to this Twitter user.
And something about body hair.
On Tuesday, the Winnipeg Police Service issued a statement to "sincerely apologize to all members of the public, especially those who overheard the broadcast."
"On June 22, 2015, at approximately 9:30 p.m., members of the Winnipeg Police Service Helicopter AIR1, while on routine patrol, inadvertently activated the aircraft's public address system. As a result, the flight crew's conversation was publically broadcast; some content of the conversation was inappropriate.
The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft. They became aware their conversation had been broadcast and immediately turned the system off."
The "incident" is now under review.
It seems most likely the cops in question shared their chat by accident. Or this.
