This can be placed under the file Cops do things they should probably be fired for but aren't. John Fox is a police detective who doesn't think drinking and driving is such a bad thing. He might have changed his mind when he caused a 4 car pile-up when he was dead drunk, in the middle of the day on a Thursday. Apparently it's okay to drink and drive, as long as it's before night. That way you can see the people you're about to hit in a drunken haze.

Fox wasn't fired from his job but given other duties. That leads me to the question: is there anything you can do to be fired as a cop? I feel like anytime a cop gets in trouble they're just reprimanded. I'm pretty sure if I got drunk in the middle of the day and caused a car crash I would be notified of my termination about 20 minutes later. Looks like I chose the wrong police field. You can't get in trouble, great benefits, work around drugs and free donuts? Sounds like a dream job.

TL;DR A cop caused a car wreck while drunk in the middle of the day, doesn't lose his job.
