Police Van ‘Planking’ In R.I. Investigated

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (UPI) — Police in Rhode Island said they are investigating after pictures were posted online of two women “planking” on a police van.

Providence police said an internal investigation was opened after photos appeared on Facebook of two women “planking,” a posing trend involving a person lying on their stomach with their bodies rigid like a wooden plank, on a city police van, WPRI-TV, Providence, reported Wednesday.

“The incident took place several months ago. The officers operating the police van identified themselves and the administration will take necessary action,” police spokesman Steven Pare said.

A witness said the women were drunk and one of them appeared to fall off the van while taking the pictures.
