The Garda Ombudsman has reportedly launched an investigation into a video apparently showing a garda making fun of a member of the public.
The video, which has been posted on the You Tube website, appears to show a uniformed garda taking a phone call from a man who wants to speak to the sergeant.
The incident apparently happened in a Co Cavan station.
The garda repeatedly laughs and mocks the man while telling him that the sergeant is unavailable.
Reports this morning say the Garda Ombudsman Commission has launched an investigation into the matter, while the Gardaí are also conducting an internal inquiry.
