Two Washington DC officers crashed and totaled their police vehicles while drag racing on duty last week, a report said.

The cops from the Metropolitan Police Department raced each other on Thursday at about 5 p.m. on Anacostia Avenue near Kenilworth Park, hitting speeds of at least 60 mph, Fox 5 DC reported, citing an internal email and sources.

Commander Durriyyah Habeebullah ripped the officers’ actions in the email sent to department management following the crash.

“Yesterday two 6D scout cars were totaled because officers decided instead of fighting crime, patrolling their beats, or engaging the community – they decided to drag race each other on Anacostia Avenue at 5 pm in the evening,” Habeebullah worte.

“What does this say to all the members of MPD who are passionate about their job and work hard every day to make a difference. This is not fair to any of us,” she says.
