Watch: Video shows state trooper apparently sleeping in cruiser

“Every morning I drive by you’re f------ sleeping. I can’t even see you in the front seat.”

A video appears to show a Massachusetts state trooper sleeping in his cruiser on the side of a road, and an investigation has opened into the matter.

The video, posted on Youtube Nov. 21, appears to show someone walking up to a parked cruiser. The person behind the camera then knocks on the window, and the trooper appears to sit up abruptly and rolls down the window.

“I see you sleeping here every single morning,” the camera operator says, adding that the video would go on Facebook Live. “Every morning I drive by you’re f——- sleeping. I can’t even see you in the front seat.”


In a statement, state police spokesman David Procopio said the department knows of the video.

“We are aware of the video, which appears to show conduct that is clearly unsatisfactory, and we have opened an Internal Affairs investigation,” he said.

Video includes explicit language.
