Chicago cop is under investigation for giving Hulk Hogan a chauffeured ride in his squad car with the sirens on after the ex wrestler posted video of the trip on his social media

A Chicago police officer is under investigation for giving Hulk Hogan a chauffeured ride in his squad car with the sirens blaring after the former wrestler posted video of the trip on his social media. 
In footage posted to social media on August 2 Hulk, 66, can be heard telling fans 'my Uber's got a siren', as he rode along the tarmac of O'Hare International Airport with his manager Jimmy Hart in the backseat. 
At one point in the three minute long clip, captioned 'Thank you Chicago PD much love!!!!!',  Hart tells the officer: 'Don't get in trouble doing this.'
The on-duty cop, who is assigned to the airport, seems to suggest he has permission from his superior for the ride, replying: 'My sergeant. He's all for it.'
But Chicago Police dispute that and now say he will lose a special certification allowing him to drive vehicles on the tarmac at the airport. 
He is also under investigation from the department's Bureau of Internal Affairs. 


Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi told DailyMail.com: 'This escort was not authorized by the department and Commander Thomas O'Brien of airport operations had no knowledge that it was taking place.
'The video came to the attention of the Superintendents office this week and it is of significant concern. 
'An internal affairs investigation has been opened into the officer and supervisors at the airport. We are in the process of revoking credentials for the officer to operate a vehicle on airport grounds pending the investigation.
Guglielmi told The Chicago Tribune: 'The activity and behavior demonstrated in that video poses a significant risk to the officers and overall aviation safety on the airfield. The superintendent was furious about what he saw.' 
The video shows the car driving past trucks and planes lined up on the tarmac. At one stage Hulk shouts 'watch that truck' as the officer takes a left turn to avoid oncoming traffic. 
He adds: 'This is crazy, man.' 
The cameraman, sat next to Hart in the backseat says: 'We love Chicago PD.'
Hulk replies: 'Yes, sir. Chicago PD for life.'
The officer also appears to thank Hulk and his team, saying: 'Thank you guys again, I appreciate this.' 
After chatting about their plans for the time while in Chicago, Hulk adds: 'It's just not normal driving around without a siren on.' 
The cameraman adds: 'We need to get one of those.'
Hogan replies: 'We would get in so much trouble.'  
The former wrestler then discusses a large crowd said to be waiting at the baggage claim area.
'That's why I don't have a problem doing this,' the officer replies as the cameraman adds: 'Sorry guys, we are taking the back door.' 
Hogan then asks: 'You got your bullet proof vest on?'
He adds: 'Question for you. Are you guys gonna elect that same mayor this year?'
The clip then comes to an end with the cameraman adding: 'Let me get off this live here. We love Chicago.'
