A Madison police officer was suspended for six days for attempting to download the comedy "Hall Pass" onto the laptop computer in his squad car.

Professional Standards and Internal Affairs Lt. Dan Olivas said a virus infected the laptop as a result of the May 18 download. The officer attempted to remove the virus himself and did not notify appropriate technical staff of the problem.

The officer was found to have violated department policies involving on-duty business and use and care of city-owned property, as well as the city's administrative procedure on appropriate use of computer resources.

The department does not release the names of officers disciplined for administrative violations.
