Chicago Police Aren't Happy About Hulk Hogan's Ride in a Cop Car
After landing at O'Hare International Airport, the wrestler was transported off the tarmac in a police car with its lights and sirens on.
The former wrestler posted video of himself and two companions getting a special ride across the tarmac with sirens blaring and lights flashing after his flight landed.
Hogan and his buddies were apparently being given the ride so they could avoid the crowds at the baggage claim area. At one point, the wrestler joked about getting the VIP treatment.
“Coming in hot, man. It's just not normal driving around without our siren on,” he said in the video posted to social media.
Hogan's friend seemed to realize there could be a public relations problem, telling the cop driving them, “Don't get in trouble doing this.”
“I'm not in trouble, no. My sergeant, he's all for it,” the cop replied.
Hogan's ride is now triggering major controversy.
"The superintendent was furious about what he saw," Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said, according to The Chicago Tribune. "The activity and behavior demonstrated in that video poses a significant risk to the officers and overall aviation safety on the airfield."
Internal Affairs has launched an investigation.
The officer will lose a special certification that allows cops to drive vehicles on the tarmac, Guglielmi added.
