A Harvard study of nearly 5,000 police officers across the nation has determined that 40% tested positive for a sleep disorder that may be causing them to nod off behind the wheel!
The majority of those who were discovered to have a sleep disorder, like insomnia or sleep apnea, never received treatment. Even worse is that 46% admitted to falling asleep at the wheel at least once, while 26% said they do so at least once or twice a month!

We love NHL star Sean Avery for his open minded support for same-sex marriage, but he's really gotta learn to control that temper!
On Friday morning, the Rangers player was greeted at the door of his Hollywood Hills home by police after they had received a complaint for loud music. Instead of politely turning down his tunes, he immediately began running his mouth and referred to the officers as "fat little pigs".
He threatened to fight ALL of them, then challenged the "pigs" to "Come back without your badges." Avery was booked and hauled to a nearby police station for battering a police officer after allegedly pushing a cop and slamming his door in their face.
Geez! All that for a noise complaint? That is the most AVOIDABLE arrest story we've ever heard!
C'mon, Sean! We know you're better than this behavior! Those cops were just doing their job and we hope you're man enough to apologize for your hot temper.
