WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Two New Berlin Police Officers have been fired and two Waukesha Police Officers were disciplined after a traffic stop.
"How much have you had to drink tonight, then? Two beers? Two beers? Alright."

It turns out the two people in the car that was stopped were off-duty New Berlin Police Officers.
The second time the Waukesha officers approach the car, their audio is turned off. The two officers who made the stop were disciplined.
The two officers in the car have been fired.
