A policewoman is in hot water after posing for a topless selfie in her patrol car, then posting the photo to Facebook.
Nidia Garcia, an officer in Mexico, was supposed to be patrolling the crime-riddled streets of Escobedo, when, while in her uniform, she exposed her breasts and snapped a photo.
The picture went viral in Mexico after she posted it, and the officer, a mother of two, was immediately suspended, pending the outcome of an investigation.
Ms. Garcia, made a wallowing apology on Facebook afterwards.
â€œI was wrong in letting myself be photographed in my hours of work while still wearing the uniform of an officer. I want to ask a huge apology to the secretary of security and Justice of proximity and more to my municipality general Escobedo for this immoral act on my part. I feel disgusted by the great damage caused and the damage done mainly to my two daughters, followed by my husband, my parents, brothers and entire family,â€ it read.
A spokesman for the Nuevo Leon state government said in a statement, â€œShe was immediately reprimanded and is currently at the mercy of the stateâ€™s internal police Honor and Justice Commission, which will be determining the next steps to be taken.â€
Itâ€™s still unclear whether she took the photo of herself, or if her partner took it.
But the reason for her suspension was the fact that she was in uniform, armed, and on duty â€“ not who took it.
On the day the saucy officer was suspended, three people were murdered in the town ruled cartels.
