Was high-ranking officer's
son joyriding in patrol car?
[Portland, OR]

PoliceOne Staff Report
(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- Officers looking to crack down on drag racers could have a problem within their own department.

The teen-age son of a high-ranking officer has been accused of driving his father's patrol car. A video, which appeared on a street racing website, shows the youth driving his father's unmarked car, KGW News reported.

A few officers are authorized to take their vehicles home, but are supposed to restrict their use to official business, a Portland Police Bureau spokesman told the television news station.

The site also shows an internal police memo that outlines department plans to target drag racers.
