Douglas drink dispute takes to social media

Douglas drink dispute takes to social media

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - A Facebook post aimed at an officer in Douglas got a lot of attention. The post from Wednesday showed an officer in the background enjoying a drink.

The creator of the post accused that the officer was on his second alcoholic beverage, but the police department quickly investigated the truth about the photo.

The beverage was in fact a fruit drink with ice, orange juice, pineapple juice, mango puree, and cherry syrup.

Officers say the post was not protected speech under the 1st Amendment and was clearly done to attack the officer through social media.

The post has since been deleted from Facebook.

Officials add that there was no clear evidence or proof on their part.
