Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is investigating whether employees went too far after reportedly helping the guitarist of Guns N' Roses with an elaborate proposal.
The band's lead guitarist posted photos of the tour on social media sites over the weekend.
Action News spoke with County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, who met with the sheriff about what is believed to be an unauthorized civilian fly-along.
Sisolak said the sheriff admitted the helicopter flight did take place and was not happy about it.
Word spread when DJ Ashba posted photos of the chopper trip to his social media accounts on Saturday. He named and thanked Metro Captain David O'Leary in his posts for facilitating the flight.
Sisolak said the sheriff is livid about the improper fly-along and is committed to finding out who was responsible for it.
This comes at a bad time for the sheriff, who is asking the Clark County Commission for a raise in the sales tax, in order to give him more money for officers.
Commissioners Sisolak, who has previously spoke out against the increase, said scandals like this would only negatively affect public opinion on that issue.
