Dirty Harry justice in small town Sweden

10:28 CEST+02:00
A police officer in Uppsala, north of Stockholm, is in hot water for dishing out a bit of his own rough justice.

Last April a 32-year-old Stockholm man was busted for public drunkenness and taken into the police station to sober up and questioning. The man then urinated on the floor upsetting an officer, reported TV4 Uppland on Tuesday.

The policeman, incensed over the man's liquid mess, forced him down into puddle, and attempted to mop it up with the drunk.

The officer's colleagues thought that was too much and reported him. The officer has been suspended from his job pending the inquiry.

He faces losing his job for his unorthodox approach to workplace hygiene.
