Le husband came home a little later than usual this morning. I really had no idea he was late since I had stayed up until 3AM last night, so I was out. Anyway, he got in bed as usual and as usual I was going to just go back to sleep, but for some reason I sensed something was wrong. He looked kind of 'out of it'. He then tells me that he is going to be in trouble at work.

He got involved in a pursuit last night and he was the 3rd car in, which I guess is against policy. Once the subject stopped all patrol cars came to a stop and his car lost its brakes and he went up a curb into a chain link fence and blew out both rear tires. The subject took foot bail, but they got her...yes, it was a female. Anyway, he says that the Sargeant was pissed and the accident was investigated by another department. He said he doesn't know what is going to happen and he is just so mad at himself.

I feel so terrible for him as I could just see the shame in his eyes. All I could tell him that I'm glad no one was hurt and at this point there is nothing he can do about it. The bad thing is that several months ago he messed up a patrol car on the way to a call when someone cut him off, so this is the second time although this is much worse. He has a feeling that at bare minimum he'll have to go on days off or be put in the office for awhile. I also think he might lose his special assignment once the captain hears about this. I am not sure if he's thought about that yet.

Well, he's sleeping now although I doubt it's restful sleep.
