The always zany Sgt. Carl T might have thought he was being funny -- or at least he was having fun -- when he posted on his Facebook page a video of a speeding Lamborghini with comments noting haw fast the car was going and drunk its passengers were.

T -- who legally changed his name from Tennenbaum after a superior officer told him he couldn't have a name tag reading "Carl T." -- and his Facebook friends were certainly entertained by the video -- which has since been removed -- until SFist picked it up.

Now, T is the center of an internal investigation, and we're guessing that's not so much fun.

It's standard procedure," said Officer Carlos Manfredi. "Any allegation being made or misconduct by an officer, there will be an administrative investigation."

He said the investigation will look at the total incident to determine whether the video was real. "It's not uncommon to have investigation, especially on this where a reporter is making these statements," Manfredi added.

T told SF Weekly yesterday that the car was not actually going 100 mph, and nobody was drunk. In fact, he's neither driving nor filming the sequence.

"There was no drunkenness," he told us. "I've done some crazy stuff, but I'm not that stupid."

We suppose it's up to Internal Affairs to decide.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
