SEATTLE -- Bellevue police have apologized to a Seattle police officer for three off-duty Bellevue cops who harassed an officer who asked them not to litter outside CenturyLink Field before Sunday's Seahawks game.
Bellevue police confirmed Tuesday they are conducting an internal investigation of the incident.
The Seattle Times reported that it happened as the off-duty officers were walking toward the stadium and a Seattle officer on duty at an intersection asked them to pick up a discarded item, reportedly a beer cup.
Assistant Police Chief Jim Pugel said the group berated the officer and called her names. At least two identified themselves as Bellevue officers.
Bellevue Police Chief Linda Pillo said she ordered an internal investigation and personally called the Seattle officer to apologize.
