Ten police officers from Ohio have been reprimanded after a video surfaced online showing one of them dunking his head into a five-gallon bucket of urine on a dare.

An investigation by the Mentor Police Department has revealed that Officer Phil Croucher, a 16-year veteran on the force, was off duty when he carried out the stomach-churning stunt before a Cleveland Browns game on October 14

The video of the act shows Croucher taking off his shirt, with his nine colleagues and other people cheering him on, and plunging his head deep into the urine-filled container.

In return, each of the officer?s co-workers present paid Croucher $50 for the dare totaling $450.

'The fact money was collected for this ?dare,? should not detract from [Croucher] assuming final responsibility for this poor decision,' wrote Lt Tom Powers.

Mentor Police Chief Daniel Llewellyn described Croucher as ?an exceptional? officer whose official file includes at least 14 documents commending him for excellent work, including some from Secret Service and the FBI, WTSP reported.

Croucher will be suspended two days, with one day held in abeyance upon completion of an alcohol evaluation the cost of which will be covered by the City of Mentor.

Croucher could cut the duration of his suspension by half if he attends the evaluation and has no similar conduct for a year, according to Patch Mentor.

Somewhere, somehow, a TV executive has just found his new Trash TV Reality show idea: What if we crossed over Cops with Jackass ....

Maybe there's some hidden fun in dunking your head in a bucket of your mate's **** that isn't immediately obvious. OK need volunteers to try this out. Make sure you have video of the ****ing and dunking. Must be fun, bunch of drunk cops did it.

Indeed. He didn't do anything illegal, and was off-duty at the time.

This to me definitely heads into 'big-brother' type behavior.

I can see if it was something illegal or something while on-duty, but this was off-duty and was a bet where he made out financially.

I'm not sure that $450 would be enough for me to do it...but I'm sure a number a bit higher (probably quite a bit higher) would induce me to do so.

I can always use the spare cash. :p

5 gallons of urine..... sheesh that is a lot.

Stupid stunt, dumber reaction from his department. Though, I can see the reasoning behind it, because they don't want us to view them as any worse as we already do. But still, over reaction from his department.

I suspect that the Chief thinks the public will think 'urine', 'contamination', 'AIDS', = we can't trust this cop.

Logical or not.

I really don't see a problem with this other than his police chief is being overly PC.

I agree with your assessment. Too many people get their knickers in a twist over what someone does on their own time.

So what is this diff from x-factor show? You also do crazy stuffs for money prize as well.

He also did this on his own time. I fail to see anything wrong with that.

Seems ridiculous >.>

Everyone has a price. $1,000,000 is certainly well north of mine :shiftyninja:

He didn't get suspended for doing it. He got suspended for the video of it leaking online. If you do something that embarrasses your employer, expect consequences.

Yeah, but he didn't embarrass his employers. If were in uniform then so be it. If he was on the clock, then so be it.

He is entitled to do whatever he wants when he is off the clock :\
