A cop suspended after she posed for a topless selfie photo in her patrol car in uniform and posted on the social media has apologised to justice officials in Mexico.
The snap – showing Mexican policewoman Nidia Garcia in uniform flashing her boobs as she cuddles a semi-automatic rifle – caused police chiefs in Escobedo to suspend her.
But in a Facebook confession, Nidia has admitted to posing for the snap – but denied uploading it onto social media.
She said: “I apologise to the Proximity Justice Secretariat (local police force) and moreover to the city of Escobedo for this immoral act that I have committed.”
She continued: “Since I would be incapable of uploading a photo like this on the social media, I am outraged by the great damage this publication brings to my two daughters, my husband, parents, brothers and entire family.
“I hereby admit my great fault in posing for the photo, and I ask for this topic to be left aside.
“It brought me great moral and psychological pain and I want to apologise to the municipality. We are all humans and make mistakes.” – said the mexican policewoman.
The photo shows officer Garcia with her police-issue combat uniform slipped down to her waist revealing her boobs.
As she cradles her assault rifle, she pouts and winks at the camera.
Garcia’s claim that someone else uploaded the topless snap without her permission may save her from the sack as police chiefs decide her future.
A source in the Escobedo town hall told local media: “The Honour and Justice Committee of the Public Security Secretariat will decide the professional future of the police force member. At the moment, she is suspended.”
