LAS VEGAS, Jan. 1 (UPI) -- Two Las Vegas police officers violated department policy by taking a Guns N Roses guitarist and his girlfriend on a helicopter ride, officials said Wednesday.

An internal investigation revealed Capt. David O'Leary and Officer Ray Horsley misused departmental resources in August when they took Daren Jay "DJ" Ashba and his girlfriend on a ride in a police helicopter, part of an elaborate marriage proposal by Ashba.

The ride ended with the couple being dropped off in a field near police headquarters, where champagne and roses awaited them, the Las Vegas Sun reported Wednesday.

O'Leary was to receive a demotion to lieutenant but retired instead. Horsley will be transferred from the department's Air Support Detail and will no longer fly, officials said.
