Drunk Ex-Cop Loses His Gun In NYC Gay Bar Bathroom

​Yikes! Former NYPD detective Eric Reynolds made a costly mistake last week after leaving his pistol in the bathroom at New York City gay bar, Phoenix NYC.

The New York Post reports:

The boozing caught up with the cop-turned-stand-up comedian and he went to the bathroom.

Reynolds placed his cellphone and pistol on the sink while worshipping the porcelain god, picking only the phone back up when he took off at around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, the sources said.

He and a buddy had made it all the way to Union Square when Reynolds patted his gun holster and realized his epic mistake.

The retiree sprinted back to the watering hole only to find that someone had stolen the weapon. He called police to report the lost pistol and told cops he “was not feeling well,” the sources said.

An owner at Phoenix NYC was sympathetic, saying:

“We all make mistakes. Maybe he had been drinking. He made a mistake,” said the woman, who would not give her name. “Maybe he shouldn’t have brought a gun with him.”

Er...yeah, we tend to agree.

Reynolds has not been charged with a crime for misplacing his weapon. We hope the NYPD moves swiftly in getting the missing gun off the streets. 

What's your take, Instincters?

And this is why all these idiots bringing guns to Target and Chipotle get a side eye and 50 ft of personal space from me. Just asking for dumb shit like this to happen.
