Bellevue Officers Thrown Out of Seahawks Game After Confrontation With Fan

A fan at the Seahawks game told The Seattle Times one of the officers warned him not to get pulled over in Bellevue after he asked them to keep it down.

The story of the off-duty Bellevue police officers who taunted an on-duty Seattle police officer before last Sunday's Seahawks game didn't end there, according to a fan's recount to The Seattle Times.

A fan at the game reported to The Seattle Times that the officers shortly afterward were thrown out of the game for unruly behavior, which included warning the fan not to get pulled over in Bellevue.

Bellevue police officers are under investigation by the Bellevue Police Department for off-duty behavior, after Seattle police say that several officers taunted a police officer outside the stadium when she asked them to pick up a cup that one of them dropped, The Seattle Times reported.

Seattle police Assistant Chief Jim Pugel told the Times that two members of the group identified themseleves as Bellevue police officers and taunted the Seattle officer, as well as several others who came to back her up. The officers were not arrested nor any report written because no crime was committed, according to the Seattle Police Department.

The fan who reported the officers being thrown out of the game said the group—two men and two women—arrived late and talked about the incident that occurred outside the stadium. The fan approached the group to ask the officers to stop using expletives to describe the game.

if bpd officers want to go throw a few back and act like dbags at a hawks game that's fine. lots of people do that. where it becomes a fireable offense is when they start flashing their badges and threating other 12th men that they better stay out of bellevue. that is unconstitutional and sets the city of bellevue up to get sued successfuly. she needs to go.

It isn't a "she" - it's two men and two women. Police should be held to a high standard due to the power they are given. The littering behavior warrants (pun intended) a reprimand but the threat of retribution merits termination regardless of whether it was a serious threat.
