Chrysler Auto Workers Caught Drinking During Lunch, Possibly Smoking Pot (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Chrysler has indefinitely suspended 15 workers from the Jefferson North plant in the wake of Fox 2's report, according to the WSJ.

Fox 2 Detroit busted a group Chrysler auto workers during what appears to be a particularly raucous lunch hour.

In the segment, reporter Rob Wolchek, acting on a tip from a plant worker, follows a group of workers from Detroit's Jefferson North plant who used their lunch hour to journey to a local park. Wolchek approaches a group of workers, who appear to be drinking beer and smoking some sort of substance. "Hey, guys I hate to be a buzzkill, but shouldn't you be building cars?" Wolcheck asks. Last July, President Obama paid the Jefferson North plant a visit.

The workers were observed in the park "day after day," Wolchek reports. After seeing the video, Scott Garberding, Chrysler's senior vice president of manufacturing, told Fox 2 Detroit:

"I'm very, very disturbed about what I just saw in the video and I want to make it clear that we at Chrysler take it very seriously. For us this behavior is totally unacceptable and will be dealt with swiftly. In fact, we've already identified a few of the people involved in this incident. Each of them has been suspended indefinitely, without pay, pending further investigation. We'll continue to pursue this in fact, until we're done. "
