** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) ** A police officer is out of a job and her friend faces felony charges after the officer let her friend borrow her badge and gun to get free snacks from QuikTrip, police said.
Gwinnett police told Channel 2's Tony Thomas that the officer worked for the Department of Community Supervision. Her friend was a former officer for the department. Thomas learned that it is a fairly common practice at some convenience stores that first responders get free snacks. Police said the DCS officer waited in the car and let her friend use her badge and gun to go into the QT and get free food. Gwinnett police Officer JT Smith saw the incident and didn't recognize the officer. When Smith pulled the woman's car over, she was still wearing the gun and badge.
