While the rest of the world is still grieving the loss of NBA great Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi, and the seven other lives lost in the tragic helicopter crash, some Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies are using photos they took of the crash scene to pick up girls at a local bar.
Some of the photos included gruesome remains of the victims.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, multiple L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies who responded to the crash scene took photos that included remains. We’re told one of the deputies — a trainee — took photos and at some point went to a bar and, as one source put it, “He tried to impress a girl by showing her the photos.”
We’re told the bartender overheard the conversation and filed an online complaint with the Sheriff’s Dept.
The story first came about in a report from the L.A. Times. According to that initial report, at least one L.A. County Sheriff’s official had the photos on his cell phone “in a setting that had nothing to do with the investigation.”
We now know that it was at a bar.
It’s also being reported that photos were also passed around by members of the L.A. County Fire Dept. and that Dept. is now investigating.
