Mass. police reviewing appropriateness of cop's audition tape for reality show
Tape for reality program shows officer stripping from his uniform down to his underpants

WORCESTER, Mass. — A city cop's three-year-old audition video for a reality show, in which he strips from his department-issued uniform down to his underpants, has now raised the eyebrows of police officials.
Police Chief Gary J. Gemme confirmed Friday night that police are internally reviewing the video created by veteran Officer John M. McGuiness, who currently works the patrol wagon and in the cell room. The officer, who has been on the job for roughly 20 years, has not been suspended, the chief said.
The just over two-minute video features Officer McGuiness as he auditioned for what he says is a reality show in the Boston and Cape Cod area called Wicked Summer. Posted on the web site Vimeo.com, the video description says it was filmed for the casting company.
