Police Officer Suspended for Gassing BBQ

Officer Suspended

This guy gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "now you're cooking with gas!" An off-duty Houston police officer was recently suspended for allegedly throwing a canister of tear gas at opponents during a barbecue cook-off at the Houston rodeo.

Not only did the tear gas sicken several patrons, but it also reached a USO tent where military veterans, including some amputees in wheelchairs, were gathered. The annual "Bar-B-Que" cook-off, held in conjunction with a popular rodeo, is usually attended by around 117,000 people.
