PRICHARD, Ala. (WALA) - Two Prichard police officers may face disciplinary action for not following protocol, according to Prichard city leaders.
The news comes shortly after authorities learned of a photograph obtained by FOX10 that shows two unidentified men apparently drunk and sleeping in the driver seat and back seat of a Prichard police car.
Prichard police confirm the men in the photos are not officers.
City attorney Jerome Carter said the patrol car was parked outside of Suga's Gentlemen's Club sometime around the Fourth of July.
"The individuals that ended up in the vehicle were known to the officers," said Carter. "They (the officers) were trying to assist them. The men were very intoxicated. At the time that they were dealing with those individuals a big altercation took place in front of the facility. They put the individuals in the vehicle to quickly get out there."
Carter said Mayor Troy Ephriam and Interim Police Chief Dorothy Ferrell met with the two officers involved in the incident Tuesday, June 16.
He said that some policies were violated and would not elaborate on what the officers were doing at the club and whether or not they were on-duty.
Nearby businesses and citizens said the establishment was known to have Prichard police officers working security.
