In Louisville, Kentucky, two uniformed police officers, identified as Curtis Flynn, 40, and Bryan Wilson, 36, were caught engaging in inappropriate behavior while on duty.

Over an 11-month period in 2018 and 2019, they recorded themselves throwing slushies at innocent people from their unmarked car. Additionally, they were involved in driving through puddles to splash individuals waiting at bus stops.

This behavior was documented in a video that the Courier Journal Newspaper obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. The scandal, which has been termed "Slushy-gate" locally, involved at least 24 innocent people being targeted.

Flynn and Wilson, who were members of an elite undercover drug task force, both pleaded guilty to their actions. Flynn received a sentence of three months, while Wilson was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

The Mayor of Louisville, Craig Greenberg, has stated that the culture within the police department has since changed, with a greater emphasis on training and supervision to ensure that similar incidents do not occur in the future.

He asserted that such behavior will not be tolerated.

Five other officers were disciplined for their awareness of the slushy-throwing incident but failing to report it. However, they were permitted to remain on the police force.
