MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Department of Public Works is investigating after a snow plow driver was found napping on the job.

WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1uWj3sb ) reports a camera crew recorded the driver asleep in an idling plow early Tuesday morning on the city’s east side. The driver told the news station he was working a 12-hour shift and slept through an alarm he set to wake himself up.

Milwaukee Alderman Joe Dudzik says snow duty can be grueling, but the driver should’ve gone back to the office if he needed a break.

The Department of Public Works commissioner says the driver’s nap violated policy. He says the department is investigating the incident and will determine the appropriate disciplinary action for the sleeping plow driver.
