Police officer in hot water over Kaepernick costume

A photo of the officer at a weekend Halloween party was shared online, and needless to say it upset many people.

Antonio Gutierrez is an officer with the University of Nevada, Reno Police Department (the same school where Kaepernick played college football). 

A statement from the department's chief was relayed by TMZ:

"Members of our profession are held to a higher standard and denigrating another -- on or off duty -- is insensitive for its lack of respect and lack of understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted."

However, the chief also said, "We have no policy that would dictate any disciplinary action."
