Setting the wrong example: Cop caught playing video poker while driving in snowstorm

This video has been making the rounds on youtube and facebook. It shows a Bolingbrook, IL police officer driving his squad car in the middle of a snowstorm, while playing video poker.  Talk about distracted driving!

According to the Chicago Tribune, the officer has been identified by Bolingbrook Police and an investigation is underway.

(I suppose I should remind everyone that videotaping the police is still technically a Class 1 felony in Illinois, although several lower courts have ruled that the law is unconstitutional).
