A Chicago police officer is in trouble after he was shown driving WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart on an airport tarmac earlier this month when the two were in town for the National Sports Collectors Convention.
The Chicago Police Department’s Bureau of Affairs has opened an investigation into the matter after a video posted by Hogan shows the officer using his siren on his police car to drive them around to avoid a large crowd that was in the baggage claim area.
“The activity and behavior demonstrated in that video poses a significant risk to the officers and overall aviation safety on the airfield,” spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi told Jeremy Gorner of the Chicago Tribune. “The superintendent was furious about what he saw.”
The officer in question has lost a certification that allows him to drive on the airport tarmac and depending on how the investigation goes, he can also lose his job. The officer said that his sergeant gave him permission to drive Hogan and Hart.
