An alcohol taskforce cop got drunk in a Swiss police station and shot a colleague in the foot, authorities said on Monday.
The intoxicated officer fired his gun seven times inside the taskforce office’s last Friday, a spokesman for the Geneva judiciary confirmed.
Five of the man’s colleagues were there including ‘one who was hit in the foot and had to undergo surgery,’ he said.
The officer was questioned by Geneva’s top prosecutor and stands accused of endangerment and causing bodily harm through negligence.
He has also been accused of resisting efforts to establish his ‘capacity to drive’.
The authorities, who did not provide details on what the man’s blood-alcohol level had been at the time, said the investigation was ongoing.
