NORWALK, Connecticut (WABC) -- Two Connecticut police officers accused of drinking on the job and ignoring service calls appeared in court on Thursday.
Norwalk officers Michael Dimeglio, 38, and Sara Laudano, 31, are charged with reckless endangerment and larceny for getting paid while allegedly not working.
Authorities say the officers were discovered at a hotel together back on October 10, in no condition to work or respond to calls while they were supposed to be on patrol.
