Belgian police apparently had an orgy during the manhunt for the Paris attackers

That’s one way to blow off steam.

Brussels was on lockdown following the deadly Paris terrorist attacks as an intense manhunt was underway in the city to capture suspected terrorists thought to be involved in the attack. A group of police officers and soldiers may have blown of steam in a rather unconventional manner.

Police chiefs in Belgium are now investigating allegations that two policewomen and eight soldiers had a sex party. The orgy is thought to have occurred in a police station in the Brussels neighborhood of Ganshoren. The soldiers posted at that police station slept there for two weeks, when many raids were carried out by officers in hopes of finding terrorists and accomplices associated with the Paris attacks.

Police spokesman Johan Berckmans confirmed to local media that 15 to 20 soldiers had been sleeping at the police station for a two-week period. He told De Morgen that an internal investigation had been launched.

Things aren’t looking great for the Belgian army. This is the second investigation to be launched this month against Belgium soldiers; last week, a soldier was caught with a shopping bag while on anti-terrorist patrol.
