Residents get earful as Winnipeg officers in police chopper broadcast sex chat


The Canadian Press

Winnipeg: Police are apologizing after officers flying in a helicopter mistakenly broadcast a conversation that one person says referred to a sex act.

Police say the officers were on routine patrol Monday night when they inadvertently turned on the chopper’s public address system.

They didn’t know many in the city could hear their workplace chatter.

People took to social media to describe the R-rated conversation using the hashtags #whoops and #speakerphone.

One tweet said the conversation included talk about oral sex.

Police say some of the remarks in the conversation were inappropriate and the incident is under review.
