NEWS — Two rookie, off-duty police officers allegedly beat up a longtime customer outside the Mid City Yacht Club this week after having drinks inside. The police department investigated and decided, after looking at video footage, that the officers were the aggressors. They’ve been arrested and are losing their jobs. Owners of the Mid City Yacht Club released a statement today saying they are “sickened” that this happened to the customer and plan to raise money to support him. And FYI, one of the officers says he doesn’t even remember any of it happening. [FACEBOOK]
