Cop Lets Underage Drinker Go After Playing Rock, Paper, Scissors (VIDEO)

An alleged underage drinker apparently avoided a ticket by beating an officer in a game of rock, paper, scissors during a Texas music festival over the weekend.

In the video, the girl who'd allegedly been drinking won the game by throwing rock while the officer went with scissors. The crowd around the pair of competitors erupts with yells and the girl looks relieved when she realizes she's won. Two other police officers are among the spectators.

Video of the victory went viral and now the three law enforcement officers are in hot water, according to KBTX.

Burleson County Precinct 2 Constable Dennis Gaas wouldn't name the three officers nor what agencies employ them, but he told KBTX that they're barred from working next year's country music Chili Fest in Snook, Texas.

"I have seen the video and can only say that this is unacceptable and unprofessional conduct by these officers,” Gaas said in a statement obtained by the Eagle. “Officers are given the choice of giving a warning or issuing a citation for any violation they encounter during this event. Playing a game to see if a citation or warning is given does not fall under professional conduct. All officers were instructed during orientation to present a professional appearance and attitude.”

Gaas did not return a request for comment from The Huffington Post.
