    Police: Gun belt stolen from car while officer played basketball

    A Dallas police officer told other officers late Sunday that he'd chased a man and lost his gun belt.

    But it turns out that Officer Archie Beason hadn't been in a foot chase and that his gun belt was stolen when he left it in his squad car while he played basketball, authorities said. Officer Beason was on duty at the time.

    "He did admit to it," said Lt. Vernon Hale, a Dallas police spokesman. "He's been placed on restricted duty pending an investigation."

    The incident began late Sunday in the 5000 block of Colonial Avenue, records show.

    According to police, Officer Beason called dispatch and reported that he was in a foot chase and that his gun belt had come off and been taken. When others officers arrived, they could not find Officer Beason's gun belt or the person he had said he was chasing.

    Among the items on his gun belt was his 9 mm gun, an expandable baton, handcuffs, 46 bullets, three pistol magazines and mace.

    Witnesses tipped off authorities that Officer Beason had not been in a chase and that he had been playing basketball. He had left the gun belt on the front seat of his squad car, records show.

    The gun belt was recovered Monday after police received an anonymous call telling them where it could be found.

    "I'm told that we did get everything back," Lt. Hale said.

    Officer Beason was hired in 2001. He could not be reached for comment Monday.

    Wow. When I feel I really did something stupid at work, I shall always look at this and realize that I am not as retarded as I sometimes feel I am.

    Yeah, especially when he started involving other officers in looking for the nonexistant guy he was supposedly chasing and lying about it - He probably wouldn't be in nearly that much trouble just for having his gun stolen while he was taking a break playing basketball.

    Just play with it on? LOL....Or keep your damn doors locked!
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    There's a TN Trooper suspended right now for getting a BJ from a porn star on duty. Don't know how much truth there is to the account, but all the same..

    lol - Who wants to play basketball with a vest on, anyway? I can see getting BJ's with a vest on, since they can stay in the air-conditioned car

    My chief has a great phrase that is told to all the rooks...

    You can lie to your friends,
    I will lie to my friends,
    But we are going to tell each other the truth.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
