Traffic cop fired shots over pedestrians' heads
Remind me to wait for the walk signal
A Czech traffic police officer fired shots over the heads of pedestrians because they walked across a street against a red light.
One of the bullets hit the side of a passing car, but the occupants escaped injury.
The incident in the city of Plzen is being looked into.
A police spokeswoman told the daly Pravo paper: "A male police officer fired shots with his police pistol, but I cannot say more as the case is currently being investigated."
The paper said the officer began shooting in the air several times when the pedestrians ignored his calls not to cross the road until the pedestrian crossing light was green.
