Photos of a scantily-clad woman and a Laredo, Tex. police car are spreading rapidly around Facebook. Police promise a “thorough investigation.”

Every day, the Daily Dot finds something that people on Facebook are sharing and, in turn, shares it with you—with a little explanation. Here’s today’s share.

An unidentified Facebook user in Laredo, Texas has brought a potential police scandal to light—by sharing a photo of a scantily-clad woman apparently either entering or exiting the driver’s side door of a police car.

According to Laredo’s local Pro 8 News, that photo was posted to Facebook on Sunday evening, and was soon rapidly shared. A second photo shows the woman, who wears only either a bikini or her underwear, standing upright next to the same police car.

“Maybe she’s asking for directions?? Lol,” Jessie Sanchez wrote in one instance of the share.

A police spokesperson told the Daily Dot that the photo “pretty much” came to their attention because of its popularity on Facebook, but refused to comment further. Laredo Police did, however, issue a statement that promised a “thorough investigation” of the photo, and asked people not to assume the worst.

“We sincerely hope that the public afford us the opportunity to look into this matter before jumping to any conclusions of misconduct,” the statement said.
