Oxford Police's Riot Shield Tobogganists Reprimanded

The BBC reports that police officers filmed using riot shields to sledge down Boars Hill in Oxford while on duty (or as one wag on Twitter puts it, "abusing UK's largest cocaine haul") have been reprimanded.

Supt Andrew Murray from Thames Valley Police, said:

"I have spoken to the officers concerned and reminded them in no uncertain terms that tobogganing on duty, on police equipment and at taxpayers' expense is a very bad idea should they wish to progress under my command."
Here's the video:

Well, at least they weren't whacking people in the face with their shields. They should stick to sledging down hills...safer prospect and more civil liberties friendly!
