Police Chief Caught Making Out With Cop In Cruiser With Prisoner In Back

The police chief of a northeast Ohio township has retired after a video became public showing him and a female office kissing and caressing in the front of a police cruiser while a prisoner was in the back seat.

Timothy Escola retired Tuesday night after four years with the
Perry Township police department about 50 miles south of Cleveland.
Law Director Charles Hall says Escola's retirement closes an
internal investigation.

Hall says no charges are being considered against part-time officer Janine England, who was with Escola in the cruiser June 2.

Escola and England drove to the Cincinnati area to pick up a burglary suspect.

An anonymous tip prompted an investigation last week and a review of the cruiser's dashboard camera.

    Its not funny. Would you find this cute if you had a family member in your house being beat to death and instead of the cop making his way to your house he was making out in his patrol car? Does anyone have morals these days or are these the last days?

    Why is this of any concern to people in North Carolina. There has to be more important news than this. You keep putting these stories on the web that nobody wants to read because they are stupid.

    Is it sexual harrassment for the prisoner.

    Are they going to charge the suspect in the backseat as a peeping tom?
