The incident, which took place in June, also resulted in a citation for the restaurant.
But this week, things took a strange turn in court, when prosecutors were forced to drop the case against both Medina and Hooters when Medina's attorney pointed out that the detectives had been drinking inside the Hooters even after they'd denied it to the judge.
The Colorado Springs Police Department said the cops were drinking as part of their undercover work and that they never meant to deny they'd ordered beers. Besides, they hadn't been drinking to the point of intoxication.
Either way, sounds like a pretty gritty assignment, one that taxpayers in Colorado Springs are probably very glad they are paying for. Maybe the Colorado Springs Police Department should stick to Applebees.
