LONDON, UK – An internal police investigation has been launched after an anti-social behaviour police inspector in charge of emergency calls for central London has been arrested after she was caught drunk in the street.
Jo Northmore, 38, was spotted turning over a road sign by two police officers as she stumbled home at 2am.
They followed her down the road and when challenged about her behaviour she refused to apologise and became abusive before she was arrested.
The City of London officer, who is in charge of handling all 999 calls about anti-social behaviour, was later given an £80 fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly.
The fine came after a night out in Shoreditch, East London, last Sunday.
According to The Sun newspaper, she was tagged in photographs on Facebook less than 24 hours later at different nightclub.
Scotland Yard said: ‘We can confirm Met officers arrested a 38-year-old woman. She was issued with a fixed penalty notice.’
City of London Police said: ‘A misconduct investigation has begun.’
