A California state parks ranger is on administrative leave following a rather hilarious and compromising photo taken August 15.
The officer, Tyson Young, has been stripped of his peace officer status as well.
According to the anonymous source who took the photograph, Young was parked irregularly along State Route 254, aka the “Avenue of Giants” in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.
When the anonymous man stopped to make sure everything was okay, he saw the officers head slumped against the window. Immediately he reached through the open window and tried to wake the officer.
“I shook him, really shook him,” the man said. “And then I saw the beer between legs.”
After not being able to wake the officer, the man dialed 9-1-1 and then snapped this epic photo.
