A video making the rounds online shows the moment a woman took possession of a police officer’s weapon while he was sleeping.
The policeman was spotted sleeping at his duty post, when the woman snuck up on him and pick up the rifle he positioned beside him.
Shortly after she grabbed the gun, he woke up and seemed to have panicked upon seeing her with his service weapon.
The woman however, handed it back to him without uttering a word and he in turn collected the rifle without questioning her.
It is not immediately clear if she is also a police officer or a random citizen who wanted to teach him to be more careful with his weapon.
Watch the video below:
Mixed reactions greeted the post as some posited that the woman is a senior officer which is why the policeman could not speak, while others noted that he may lose his job for being careless.
