HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Six Honolulu police officers face two separate investigations because they're accused of drinking at a bar on duty while getting paid overtime for a special police operation, the Honolulu Police Department said.

A police department spokeswoman said the six plain clothes officers accused of drinking on the clock work in HPD's district one, which encompasses the urban Honolulu area.

The officers were getting paid overtime through a federal grant to work on an underage drinking enforcement operation, an HPD source said.

The six HPD officers did legitimate investigative work for the first six hours of their operation, but then they decided to go drinking for the last two hours of their operation, and collected overtime for the two hours they spent drinking, a source said.

1. Someone probably asked them why they sat at a bar without ordering a drink for 6 hrs

One round probably led to another.

They sure as sh-t wouldn't be the first cops who ever took a drink on the clock.
