Concerned by this he went to the radio operations room where he found one of his men so drunk that he could barely stand.

The officer was out of uniform too.

A breath test was ordered and the officer, who admitted to drinking on duty, was found to have 295 milligrams in his blood.

He was stepped down and placed on sentry duties for a month. This was according to procedures, said Phaisan.

The chief added that it was not his intention for the video to end up in the public domain, reported Daily News.

The video he took was intended to remind all station chiefs in the province to make sure that officers under their command are not drunk on duty.
