BOSTON - An alleged police escort for two gay porn stars from Boston's Logan Airport to a nightclub performance has one officer riding a desk while Internal Affairs probes "misuse of police resources."
According to local reports, Falcon exclusives Jordan and Aden Jaric were met at the airport by a patrol car when their plane landed Oct. 24. The unnamed officer then turned on his cruiser's light bar and escorted the married couple to the Roxy, where they were to present a strip show that evening.
According to Boston's 7 News, Scott Birchall, who administers the website for Trixxx, a Providence, RI, gay club at which the Jarics were to perform the following evening, arranged for the police escort in Boston. Birchall is a friend of the officer involved, 7 News reported.
The officer has been placed on administrative duty pending the outcome of the Internal Affairs investigation.
Police Commissioner Edward Davis said no such use of police resources was authorized by the department. If the allegations are true, he added, the officer's behavior violated the public's trust by inappropriately employing resources during a time when budgets are tight.
"These are troubling allegations at a time when resources are stretched thin," Davis said in a prepared statement released Thursday. "The department is taking this matter very seriously, and it will be fully investigated."
The Jarics said they didn't know the escort wasn't standard operating procedure.
"We thought the police escort was standard procedure for the club that hired us," Jordan Jaric told GAYVN.com. "We had no idea this would turn into a local scandal. Since it was our first trip to Boston we just thought the escort was awesome Boston hospitality."
Aden Jaric added, "Our performance contract calls for ground transportation to be provided, and we never know until we arrive what type of transportation that will be. We are very surprised by the reaction to this and are truly sorry for anyone's inconvenience."
The Jarics appeared in Endless Crush and Rough Play in 2007 and in Malibu Heat, Winter Heat and Best Men, Part 2 during 2008.
